    Jasper
    Changed reply in topic of Untruthful image by Jasper to Dear Iztok, <br /><br /> Thanks for your message. I take it your message concerns Dollar Street and specifically this home on Dollar Street: <a href="http://www.gapminder.org/dollar-street/family?thing=Families&amp;countries=Bulgaria&amp;regions=World&amp;zoom=4&amp;row=1&amp;lowIncome=26&amp;highIncome=15000&amp;lang=en&amp;place=54d1e6384e5d481411899d86&amp;activeImage=18" rel="nofollow">http://www.gapminder.org/dollar-stree...</a> <br /><br /> You're right that similar pictures can be found in other parts of the world. And you're also right that this specific home is not representative of all homes in Bulgaria. However, Dollar Street is not meant to contain a representative or average sample of a country, world region or even the world. Instead, we aim to give examples of homes on each income level in each country. In other words, it's qualitative, not quantitative data. We have other tools that give a better view of the income distribution of Bulgaria vs the rest of the world. We are working of integrating them with Dollar Street so you can estimate how many people in Bulgaria actually live on the income level of that home. <br /><br /> The Mileva Veselinov family is, with their $650 (purchasing power parity) per month, in the global upper middle income level. I wouldn't say they live in a slum, especially if we compare their house to families living on lower income levels. But you are probably right that their home can give a wrong idea of the diversity of living situations in Bulgaria. <br /><br /> Since we have only one home in Bulgaria, we'd love to have more homes to give a better idea of how people in Bulgaria live. If you can help us out by going out to other homes in Bulgaria to take pictures, let us know! Or maybe you know someone who would like to help? If so, go here and look under the "Participate" header: <a href="http://www.gapminder.org/dollar-street/about?lang=en" rel="nofollow">http://www.gapminder.org/dollar-stree...</a> <br /><br /> If you have any more questions, please let us know. <br /><br /> All the best, <br /> Jasper.

    Yvon van Rijswijk
    Changed reply in topic of Planetary threats. I miss this theme on Gapminder. by Yvon van Rijswijk to I miss facts and figures about the negative impact of men. The negative aspects of consumarism, the danger of an increasing amount of people that get richer and will buy more and more stuff, the devestation of nature, the extinction of animal species, the increased polution, the wars. Watch the video animation MAN by Steve Cutts on Youtube. <a href="https://youtu.be/WfGMYdalClU" rel="nofollow">https://youtu.be/WfGMYdalClU</a>.

    Ola
    Changed reply in topic of What is the fair value of human population? by Ola to Thanks for good reply!&nbsp;<br />But how on earth would you achieve this:&nbsp;<br />"we reduce the number to 1B new children"<br />There's no ethical way. Families seem to want roughly 2 children... And that is a fortunate circumstance. The preferred number of children could have been three, or one ... and humanity would have been in a very difficult situation. But people with a choice tend to choose,... roughly 2 ( I have three).
