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 an estimate of the number of women who die during pregnancy or childbirth per 100,000 live births.
In 2013, there was an average of 210 deaths per 100,000 births, with great disparities between continents and in terms of levels of development. Per 100,000 births, there were 8 deaths of women in Europe, 26 in North America and 6 in Japan. By contrast, the number of women who died during pregnancy or childbirth per 100,000 births was 510 in sub-Saharan Africa; it reached 900 in Chad, the Central African Republic and Sierra Leone.
