Xan Gregg and I have been at it for a number of years. To celebrate Pi Day today, I am ridding the world of one pie chart.
Here is a pie chart that is found on Wikipedia:
Here is the revised chart:
It's been designed to highlight certain points of interest.
I find the data quite educational. These are some other insights that are not clear from the revised chart:
- Japan's economy is larger than Germany's
- Russia's economy is smaller than that of Germany, Italy, India, Brazil, or South Korea
- China and Japan combined have GDP (probably) larger than Western Europe
- Turkey, Netherlands, Switzerland, South Africa are in the Top 20
PS. Xan re-worked a radar chart this year. (link)
