🔗 Pixels of Progress: A granular look at human development around the world from the McKinsey Global Institute. Instead of looking at development at regional or country scale - how about using 40,000 microregions?
This pixelated version of the world, compiled with cutting-edge statistical techniques like the use of night-time satellite imagery, provides a much more nuanced view of development than previous research, enhancing our understanding of global progress in ways that can help business and governments make better, more targeted decisions.

📊 Visualized: The World’s Population at 8 Billion from Visual Capitalist. Not the first thing I have featured something from Visual Capitalist but certainly a recent favourite. If you scroll beyond the initial global infographic they have produced this style of infographic for each continent. These are really interesting when looking at preconceptions (not one of the 4 Ps; power, possibilities, etc).
