DID YOU KNOW that 5% of the world’s population lives in the areas colored in blue and that the same number of people live in the red region? Max Galka from Metrocosm created the map below to show the incredible extremes of population density in the world.

The red region encompasses:

  • Bangladesh (172,019,000 people)
  • The Bihar state of India (99,000,000 people)
  • The Jharkhand state of India (32,000,000 people)
  • The West Bengal state of India (90,320,000 people)
