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:
"Ratio girls / boys in primary and secondary school, percentages, 2013"

This indicator gives the ratio of girls to boys enrolled in primary and secondary education.
In most countries there are as many girls as boys in primary and secondary schools. The girls-to-boys ratio seems to be independent of a country's level of development. In North America, Europe and Asia, there are as many girls as boys; in sub-Saharan Africa, there are 9 girls for every 10 boys.
Only 10 countries have a ratio below 80 girls to 100 boys; Afghanistan, which has a ratio of 65 girls to 100 boys, has the lowest rate of female enrolment. By contrast, Guyana, Oman and Tuvalu have the highest ratios: there are more girls than boys enrolled at school.
The ratio of girls / boys in school does not seem to depend on the countries’ level of development.   Find out more
