What on earth is absolute population?
Texas is the US state with the second highest population, surpassed only by California.
The total amount of people in one place.
Western Sahara is yet again grey
Foreign-held public debt?
You know, I read that sentence and it makes total sense. Grammatically. Except that surely it's the total number of people. Unless you mean tonnage (which would be a very strange thing to mean).
But there's a total number of people in one place everywhere. So I still don't understand.
It's clearly not population density. But what on earth does it mean? Is it just something designed to make me feel stupid?
It is the total number of people living in each political division.
"Absolute number" just means it is the basic number. No modifiers, ratio, percentage, etc.
OK. I can accept that. But then why is the UK coloured green and Japan not coloured at all?
Do you have some special meaning for the phrase "political division"?
edit: Ok it's a ranking. Hmm. I'm still pondering this.
Total amounts of population per state entity with its own Constitution, I'd say.
Must be morbid obesity.
Amount of U.S. currency in circulation or use? Nah that doesn't seem right, but I'm going with it
Is this about X as a percentage of GDP?
Nah. It's on a per capita basis
Number of morbidly obese people that use those motorthingies to move ?
Number of people that responded with "Maybe" in a survey that asked "If you were stranded with some other person on a deserted island with no food would you eat the other person ?"
Number of beached whales per capita ?
Number of fast food places per capita?
Diabetes type II rates?
Percentage of people who think their country is the best.
That was about the previous map, not this one.
Nothing so far. Obesity is still the closest guess
