Visualizing world population and per capita income with pie charts

pie chart
Have the world poor been getting poorer?
Or has there been any progress made against
global poverty? Click on this link:

for some diagrams that illustrate
some of these changes. Each diagram
is a pie chart for a particular
year, with the size of each pie
slice representing the relative
share of the world’s population
for that country or group of
countries, and the color represents
the per-capita income. Links
to the data sources are included.
