Cartogram on wage inequality (dystopia)

Each circle shows the sum of wages, of either men (cyan) or women (yellow), employed in various districts. As the animation evolves, the map reveals Portugal’s asymmetries in population distribution, with some regional areas allocating more wages than others. Furthermore, knowing that the number of men and women employed is similar, one can notice by the size of each circle how much inequality exists between men and women. On average, a woman makes 26% less than a man in Portugal.
