The bar-mekko chart below shows the estimated labor surplus or shortage by country in 2030. The x-axis, or the width of the bars, depicts the size of the labor force and the y-axis, or the height of the bars, shows the percent labor surplus/shortage. Therefore, the area of the bar indicates the absolute surplus or shortage. However, for Germany and Brazil we use the axis break to make the chart more readable. As such, the area of the respective bars is not the true representation of the absolute surplus/shortage.
This data was published by BCG and Business Insider based on work led by BCG partner Rainer Strack.
