US County Electoral Map - Land Area vs Population - Engaging Data

A little while ago, I made a map (cartogram) that showed the state by state electoral results from the 2016 Presidential Election by scaling the size of the states based on their electoral votes. The idea for that map was that by portraying a state as Red or Blue, your eye naturally attempts to determine which color has a greater share of the total. On a normal election map of the 2016 Election, Red states dominate, especially because a number of larger, less populated states happen to vote Republican. That cartogram changed the size of the states so that large states with low population, and thus low electoral votes tended to shrink in size, while smaller states with moderate to larger populations tended to grow in size. *****Urban Expansion 3D Visualization / Animation (4000 years of population growth 2200 BC - 1980 AD)

Will saving poor children lead to overpopulation? Short answer - No.

Will saving poor children lead to overpopulation?

The opposite. In this short video Professor Hans Rosling shows that people living in poverty have many children. The poor families suffer from high child mortality, and the largest population growth occurs where people are poor. Parents in richer communities expect their children to survive, which is one of the reasons they decide to have fewer babies. Saving poor children is an important factor in ending both poverty and population growth. You can download this video here!

*****Professor Danny Dorling says we need more babies, not fewer, Harry

Harry and Meghan might even stop at just Archie, he seemed to imply. He would certainly not go to three, as his elder brother William has done. The reason he gave was that ‘I’ve always thought: this place is borrowed. And, surely, being as intelligent as we all are, or as evolved as we all are supposed to be, we should be able to leave something better behind for the next generation.’ In other words, Harry was worried that we have stolen the future from the generations to come.

*****Gapminder Slideshows

The first list of slideshows contains slides for various Gapminder Answers. The second list contains Test Questions including the results from our Global Knowledge Survey in different countries. One way to use these modular slides 1) Ask your audience to answer one or more Test Questions; 2) Gather their answers but don’t disclose their results; 3) Explain the facts behind the correct answer using the related Answers Slides; 4) Now give them their results and discuss why they scored so poorly, which most audiences do; 5) Comfort your audience by comparing them with the public, using the results from our Global Knowledge Surveys found in the last slide after the Test Question. *****Demographics: What We Can Do.
