How do you approach a city with the sheer size, complexity and contradictions of Rio de Janeiro?
The demographic data collected in this map offers an overview of the city’s makeup. From age structure to income, these statistics will make each neighborhood (bairro) more transparent, both for locals and those who have never been here.
Even as a total stranger to the city, you will be able to see right away that in Barra da Tijuca the white and rich stick to their own kind. Located at the other end of the city is Gericinó. There, 87 percent of the population are male, approximately 85 percent are between 20 and 50 years old and almost 70 percent are black or mixed. That neighborhood hosts one of Brazil’s largest jails.
