Mapping Spanish Debt - Part Two
Last week Spanish newspaper El Pais released an interactive map showing which Spanish municipalities have increased or lowered their level of debt since 2011. The Variation of Municipal Debt in the Last Legislature map colors each Spanish municipality by whether they have reduced or increased their level of debt.
El Pais has now published another interactive map of the debt levels held by Spanish municipalities. Municipal Debt per Capita in 2014 uses scaled map markers to visualize how much money is owed be person in each Spanish municipality. The larger the marker the larger the per capita debt.
You can click on each municipality on the map to view its per capita debt level and its total level of debt. In total there are 561 municipalities in Spain which owe more than 1,000 euros per inhabitant.
