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 TB cases per 100,000 inhabitants, 2013"

This indicator gives an estimate of the number of people with TB per 100,000 inhabitants.
Taking all countries together, there were 126 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 2013. While this figure was below 15 in North America and the European Union, it reached 280 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in sub-Saharan Africa; the seven worst affected countries in relative terms are found in this part of the world.
The countries of South-East Asia have a high rate, as do Pakistan and North Korea.
The rate is relatively high for the countries of Eastern Europe: the number of cases there is 8-10 times higher than in the countries of the European Union. In Moldova, the rate is higher than the global average.
When the size of the population is taken into account, the incidence of tuberculosis is the greatest in African countries.   Find out more
