About the product

This wall chart features tables and graphics regarding the population in urban and rural areas around the world in 2009. By the middle of 2009, the number of people living in urban areas (3.42 billion) had surpassed the number living in rural areas (3.41 billion) and since then the world has become more urban than rural. The world population is expected to increase by 84 per cent urban in 2050. The 2009 Revision of World Urbanization Prospects provides a useful basis for the analysis of the world’s urban transformation and the dynamics of city growth.
