If the curve were calculated using any areas taken from a cartogram a straight line would be the result. On the cartogram everybody is, in this sense, equal. What is required to produce an unequivocal answer to the question first posed is an unambiguous set of areas — the land areas which people actually own or lease. Unfortunately, the spatial boundaries of these areas are not generally available. 8, as the most dense areas have declined in population and the least dense have risen (in absolute terms as shown here, and even more so relatively).
Many maps do not show the boundaries which are used in their creation but all maps present spatial boundaries of one form or another. In this atlas administrative boundaries are used to create the maps, and then the boundaries between areas with different levels of a variable are depicted.
