The U.S. ranks 167th in rural population

According to the World Bank, 18% of the population of the United States lives in rural areas. This is enough to make the United States tied for one hundred sixty-seventh with Luxembourg and South Korea, out of two hundred one countries ranked in that category. Burundi ranks first, with 89% of its population living in rural areas.

    I just want to point out how horrible many of these figures are. 3 dimensional figure are a big no no. Cone shapes for bar graphs? The author of this site should do a bit more research on how to most accurately portray these data.
