See how the rest of the world lives, sorted by income



Imagine everybody in the world lives on the same street. The poorest live to the left and the richest, to the right. Everybody else lives in between. This is the Dollar Street, a revolutionary tool created by Gapminder to show how people live on different income levels. We use photos as data to show the differences and similarities in people’s lives across the world, sorted by income. When we look at the everyday lives of people, instead of the extraordinary shown in media, country stereotypes simply fall apart.
