What about Colombia? 48-49million people for the northwest? I don't think 10 million live south of the equator or do they?

Based on this image I would say you're right: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Mapa_de_Colombia_(poblaci%C3%B3n_por_departamentos_2012).svg They should top Canada, probably Spain too.

Yes, I noticed that too. Actually, more than 95% of the population live north of the equator. It's mostly rainforest down there.

If those in Colombia all would all live below the equator, they would make the Southwest quadrant :). So either way, missing.

PjotrL your argument of "either way it is missing" is not sound. If 38,5m would live above the equator and 10,5 below (which of course is not the reality, but neither was your speculation), Colombia would not show up on either list.

Yes, not seeing Colombia was extremely confusing.

Colombia has 49.06 million, and virtually all of these will live north of the equator.

Angola has 29.78 million (according to Wikipedia in 2017), which may well displace Kenya from 5th place. It depends on how you estimated the "30 million" number for Kenyans living south of the equator.

I took a look at the population density map of Kenya. I think 30 million was an underestimate. 40 million seems closer. The area south of the equator is much more heavily populated.

I made this quiz a while back but used Northern, Southern, Western, and Eastern. There were some repeats, but I think this way is better!

Look at Russia.
Now look at Bangladesh.

It must be like being in a crowded bar, all of the time.

You could fit, like, 50 Bangladeshes into all of Russia.

If each answer only includes people living in that hemisphere... then it would be a lot more clear if only the portion of the country contained within that hemisphere turned green. For instance when you guess Brazil, the portion below the equator should turn green while the portion above remains yellow. This way you don't think that you got one right for the NW quadrant when you haven't.

That is not what hemisphere means. Northern or southern, eastern or western. When you divide it into four, hemisphere is not a correct word. Quadrant would be a more correct word in this case.

It is if we want it to be. All we have to do is slowly slip it into conversations until it gradually becomes an accepted word.

Pretty cool quiz. Definitely some answers that I wouldn't have gotten without having the lines drawn on the map (and I would have felt pretty stupid for not remembering that the Prime Meridian runs through England).
