I knew it had to be a micro country, but I haven't seen a picture of Monaco in a while I guess.

I can not reproduce the numbers when using the same sources. Please be aware that the initial list of skyscraper data contains also buildings which are jut proposed for future construction.

You're probably looking at the 100 meter buildings. The website does show many incomplete buildings but the list I looked at only had completed structures.

I clicked on the left on the country names to see the complete list. But you are right about the sykscraper numbers, the first list only counts completed buildings. I still have some issues with reproducing the numbers but this is now due to the continously changing population sizes. Nevermind.^^

Originally the term meant more than 10 stories (138ft) but that doesn't seem so high these days.

Without steel and elevators, that would be pretty high.

For those interested, were Hong Kong an independent country it would easily top this list at 1 per 21,000.

If St. Peter's Basilica were a few metres higher then the Vatican City would easily top this list, without having a single building that anybody would describe as a skyscraper.

Shouldn't the title be "People per Skyscraper"?

No, it would be fewest people per skyscraper. Fewest people per skyscraper and most skyscrapers per person are logically equivalent, it is just easier to list people per skyscraper because the numbers will be greater than 1 and can be approximated to integers, rather than having a number like 0.000026 skyscrapers per person.

I came from a city quiz so I spent 2 minutes trying to guess cities for this. Only realized what was wrong once only Singapore and Monaco were guessed correctly and everything else was empty.

Interesting data. They dont per see match up with rich countries and good economy ( though many would be on that, but also many of thóse lists are absent here). Maybe the common factor is, countries that really want to grow fast?
