About the product

The global proportion of urban population increased from a mere 13 per cent in 1900 to 29 per cent in 1950 and, reached 49 per cent in 2005. Since the world is projected to continue to urbanize, 60 per cent of the global population is expected to live in cities by 2030. This detailed wall chart provides statistics about urban agglomerations worldwide and gives the best indication of the scale of these dramatic developments.
