The anamorphisis proposed by the Cité de l'économie
will show you the world in a way you may have never seen it.

Select the indicator of your choice at the top left of the screen
and then click on the 'Run the animation' button.

The surface of each country on the map then becomes proportional to the chosen indicator.
Thus, two countries that have the same value for this indicator
will have the same surface after transformation.

For some indicators, you can follow the evolution of the map over time by clicking the ► button that appears at the bottom left of the map.

The indicator currently selected is:

This indicator gives the percentage of seats occupied by women in national parliaments.
In 2014, out of 100 parliamentary seats 22 on average were occupied by women.
In North America, the share of women in the national parliaments is identical to that in sub-Saharan Africa, with 22 seats out of 100. In Europe, South America and East Asia, 30 seats out of 100 are held by women. This proportion is below the global average in the countries of the Middle East and South Asia.
The countries where the proportion is highest are developing countries: among the 20 countries where this ratio is the highest (more than 40% of seats), 14 are emerging countries. The first are Rwanda, Bolivia and Cuba, where one member of parliament in two is a woman. The countries of Northern Europe and Spain also have a high ratio.
The share of women in national parliaments does not appear related to the countries’ level of economic development.   Find out more
