Relative population videos show the evolution of log population in each 1º by 1º cell given a fixed total world population (2000). Videos show the simulated evolution of population from 2000 to 2599.

 

Relative real GDP per capita, relative productivity and relative welfare videos show the evolution of these variables relative to the world's average in each 1º by 1º cell. Videos show the simulated evolution of these variables between from 2000 to 2599.
