What Do 7 Billion People Do?

What Do 7 Billion People Do? infographic

This is a page out of Funders and Founders future book. It is a circle graph of the population of the world. The What Do 7 Billion People Do? infographic simplifies the worlds jobs into broad groups. Entrepreneurs are still the smallest group!

We explain entrepreneurship and startups visually through infographics. Here you can see draft notes from our future book.

Found on Funders and Founders!

I'm not a fan of this info graphic. (No offense to its creator intended.) In my opinion, a good infographic is marked by its ability to take the complex data or concept and explain or communicate it clearly and simply. This graphic is simply a massive over simplification of data. I think this is a pitfall in designing infographics and an easy one to fall into. There is often a temptation, instead of designing something fresh, clever and imaginative, to fall back on using images to vastly over simplify the subject.

Graphics that so overreach for simplicity, such as this, serve only to discredit the intended communication.

Howdy Randy! Great one!! :)

The most surprising thing was that 400 million entrepreneurs. Where did they find this data from? LOL

Anyway, I see that you publish many infographics from Funders and Founders. Is there any special reason?
MB @ Infographics Village,
The data about 400 million entrepreneurs is from International Labor Organization and few experts, please see another graphic for details and sources:

I find that there is a rocketing growth in data and to see "What 7 billion people do" in graphical mode is great.
I always find a graphic speaks louder than words, it is much easier to understand.

Full marks.

Now more than 7.6 billion people live on Earth, and every second 2.5 more are added. This is insane, isn't it?
