The geovisualization in this interactive map is outstanding (translation: I could play with this all day).  This displayed map shows the destination countries for migrants, with links to the data and information to read up on the topic.  Truly impressive.   For the live link, see: http://show.mappingworlds.com//world/?lang=EN

Global and National Population Pyramids

Interactive Visualization of the Population Pyramids of the World from 1950 to 2050...

 

Need population pyramids?  This is a site with good global and national population pyramids with good temporal data as well to show changes in the population (good for explaining the demographic transition model).

AmandaWilhiteee's curator insight, September 10, 6:35 AM

This population pyramid of the world is very interesting. I don't find it hard to believe how little the percentage of old people there are, and I also don't find it hard to believe that the pyramid starts out wide at the bottom and gradually get thinner the older the population gets. The majority of the population lies with the younger generation,but I would have expected the pyramid to be thicker than it is up until the fifties. AW :)

bobby isham's curator insight, September 10, 6:43 AM

In 2010, most of the world's population was younger than 60 years old. There was very little older people and almost none that are over 100 years old. There are more younger people because a lot of families are having more kids. That is what I see in this population pyramid.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Grant Graves's curator insight, September 11, 4:18 PM

Population pyramids provide a simple insight into the demographics of a population of an area. Pyramids as such can be an easy representation to figures including gender characteristics. Less developed countries tend to have lower, wider population pyramids while more developed countries tend to have taller, thinner population pyramids. In this manner, a population can be quickly be compared or contrasted.

If the world’s population lived in one city… | population geography | Scoop.it

This is an very intriguing map that shows different urban layouts and applies the concept of population density at the city scale and compares it to the global population.  What is everyone lived in the city of New York (at New York's population density)?  How big would that city be?
