Kids At Different Income Level Classes Show Their Favorite Toys

Dollar Street is a passion project by Anna Rosling Rönnlund that helps everyday people understand and use global public data. Anna was not satisfied with the results after spending 15 years carefully creating colorful and moving charts. She wanted to connect data to the everyday life, especially places far away. “People in other cultures are often portrayed as scary or exotic,” She says: “This has to change. We want to show how people really live. It seemed natural to use photos as data so people can see for themselves what life looks like on different income levels. Dollar Street lets you visit many, many homes all over the world. Without traveling.”

The first team of photographers documented 264 homes in 50 countries so far, and the list is growing. In every home, photographer spends the day taking photos of various objects (shoes, toothbrushes, toys). Then these photos are tagged into categories, household function, family name and income etc. By looking at these photos, we could easily understand the difference that is hard to see in any type of chart. Scroll down to see the world for yourself!
