Tokyo, 1.7%; Dubai, 83%

  • Tokyo = 1.7%
  • Moscow = 15%
  • London = 27%
  • Los Angeles = 34%
  • Hong Kong = 42%
  • Dubai = 83%

What do you suppose these statistics mean?

“From Tokyo’s modest 1.7% of foreign-born residents, to Dubai’s whopping 87%, in this infographic we take a look at the dynamic landscape of city demographics around the world.”
The sources for the infographic are a bit old (2007-2009), and they should probably be fact-checked before using them as one of your own sources (the quote says Dubai is 87, but the infographic says 83, for example). But it’s a good reminder for research projects: get statistics and try to show them in an interesting way.
