    Updated R1b maps of France

    I have added new samples for each region of France and calculated the haplogroup frequencies anew for each region. But most importantly I managed to get a much more accurate distribution of R1b subclades, especially for DF27 and U152 - both being far more widespread than previously thought...

    K12b New map of Southwest Asian admixture (Dodecad K12b)

    I have made a new map of the Southwest Asian admixture from Dodecad K12b. I had made the same map based on the K12 calculator many years ago, but the some people tend to confuse the two as they have the same name. Both are similar in the Middle East and North Africa, but vary quite a lot in...

    K12b New map of Northeast European admixture (Dodecad K12b North_European)

    I had not made maps of Dodecad admixture for several years. As K12b is so popular at the moment I thought I'd finally get round to making a map of the North European admixture (which I renamed Northeast European). You will find the analysis and percentages of this admixture in ancient samples here.

    Society New map of public support for abortion by country in and around Europe

    This map shows the percentage of the population who says that abortion should be legal in all or most cases (2015-17). It is based on the data from the Pew Research, except for Turkey, India, China and Japan, which are from the Ipsos survey for 2017. No data was available for Muslim countries...

    Society Low fertility, high migration rate - what will Europe look like in the future?

    I was having a look at the population projections for 2100 in Our World in Data and thought it would be easier to visualise with a map. Countries in green will see their population grow, while those in orange and red will contract. Of course such projections are very difficult to make and other...

    Politics New maps of public opinion in the EU (based on Eurobarometer surveys)

    I have created 9 new maps based on the EU Commission's Eurobarometer poll results for Autumn 2019. I will compare them with other maps I made earlier. Democracy This map shows the percentage of the population that is satisfied with the way democracy works in their country at the moment (well...

    Immigration New map of Muslim population in Europe

    I noticed that there wasn't any good map showing the percentage of Muslims in Europe by region (and not just by country), so I searched for the data and made one. Brussels had the highest percentage of Muslims (25%) of any non-Muslim country in Europe, followed by Marseille and Birmingham (both...

    Immigration Maps of foreign-born populations in Europe and the US

    These two maps show the percentage of foreign-born residents by country in Europe and by state in the United States. In Europe, countries with the highest share of foreigners are Luxembourg (47%) and Switzerland (30%). They also happen to be the richest countries, so it's no surprise that they...

    Politics Map of E-Government Development Index

    The United Nations has recently released its E-Government Survey 2020 in which they assess the availability of e-government platforms and digital services for citizens. I have made a map using their E-Government Development Index (EGDI). The index comprises three components: the OnlineServices...

    New maps of the USA

    Over the years I have created dozens of maps of Europe to help visualise the cultural, political, socio-economic, legal or lifestyle differences between countries. I thought it would be interesting to make similar maps for the United States, using the same scales and colours to facilitate...

    Society Maps of life expectancy by US State by racial group and gender

    Using data from Wikipedia for 2018, I have created maps of life expectancy by US State. I first compared overall male vs female life expectancy, as it did for Europe (also for 2018). I used the same colour scale for all maps so that the differences are immediately apparent. Let's first compare...

    Society New maps of the quality of roads, number of speeding fines & road fatalities

    I have added new vehicle maps of Europe. I wanted to see if there was a correlation between road fatalities and the quality of roads or number of speeding fines per capita. There doesn't seem to be much correlation. Road fatalities correlate best with the Human Development Index. I suppose that...

    Crime New map of gun homicide rates by country

    Gun control is a major issue in the United States and for a good reason as the USA has the highest firearm-related homicide rate in the developed world at 4.46 per 100,000 in 2017 and increasing (2017 had more gun homicides than anytime since 1993 according to No country in...

    Society New maps of cat & dog ownership by country

    Have you ever wondered in which countries people preferred cats over dogs or the other way round? Where are people most likely or least likely to own a dog? As usual a picture is worth a thousand words. Americans are in fact the most likely to have a dog as a pet, with an amazing 63% of...

    Economy New map of smartphone penetration by country in and around Europe

    I have created a new map for the series of socio-economic maps of Europe. Countries with the highest percentages of smartphone users are Germanic countries and richer states of the Arabian peninsula. Italy has a surprisingly low penetration rate, especially considering the image of Italian...

    New map of the Megalithic cultures

    Here is a map of the Megalithic cultures in Europe and North Africa, with the main sites highlighted. There are lots of maps on the web, but none that I found satisfactory as they didn't carefully list all the areas with megaliths. The oldest sites are dated to c. 6000 BCE in central Portugal...

    New map of the Bell Beaker phenomenon

    I finally got around to create a map about the Bell Beaker phenomenon. It was a complex task as there are already many maps out there, but few agree on the distribution of the Beaker and the main hubs of this vast commercial network. Some maps show arrows of the probable diffusion of the beakers...
