Trekking the Planet Continents: By the Numbers

During our global journey we published a “By the Numbers” summary of the countries we visited on each continent. We tracked some statistics and fun measures and provided a more detailed look at each of the 53 countries we visited, including:

  • Population (and world rank)
  • Area (and world rank)
  • Life Expectancy at Birth in Years (and world rank)
  • GDP Per Capita – PPP (and world rank)
  • Median Age in Years
  • Literacy Rate percentage
  • Big Mac Index (to learn more about this measure, click here)
