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:
"Number of births per 1,000 women aged 15 to 19, 1990-2014"

The fertility rate indicator measures the number of births per 1000 women aged 15 to 19.
Overall, the fertility rate fell by one-third between 1990 and 2014 to stand at 45 births per 1000 women aged 15 to 19.
This rate fell in nearly all countries, with the exception of Somalia, Vietnam (where it doubled) and Azerbaijan (where it trebled). The sharpest falls were recorded in Asia, notably in the countries of the Middle East, where the rate decreased threefold.
In North America and Europe, the fertility rate also fell, but less rapidly, the rate already being below the global average. A fall was also recorded in sub-Saharan Africa. However, the fertility rate in these countries remains twice the global average.
In Africa and Central America underage women have far more children than elsewhere.   Find out more
