At the center of world population

The Yuxi Circle: The World’s Most Densely Populated Area


If you wanted to capture over 55% of the global population inside a circle with a 4,000km radius, which city would you place at its epicenter?

Answer: the city of Yuxi, just 73 kilometers south of Kunming would be the answer. LIttle did I know when I moved to Kunming that I was moving to the almost exact center of the world's most densely populated region.
