Description:

The visualisation, created in partnership with interactive data specialists Kiln, explores the complex and crucial relationship between income per capita and urbanisation. It combines a video-style "Talkie" introduction that tells the key stories with full interactive controls that allow the user to explore the data at their own pace. It was developed to bring a rich time-series dataset to life and to provide policy experts and interested members of the public alike with a more nuanced understanding of how the urbanisation–GNI relationship differs around the world – and in particular in the BRICS nations and their respective regions. The visualisation has been widely used in talks as well as being featured online, where it has generated a lot of interest.
