Land use per gram of protein – Anything but bars – #MakeoverMonday

decembrie 10, 2018

The MakeoverMonday in this week has come with a dataset representing the use of land per protein gram.

The scope of the below dataset is to raise the awareness of meat consumption.

If you’re at a healthy weight, don’t lift weights and don’t exercise much, then aiming for 0.36–0.6 grams per pound (0.8–1.3 gram per kg) is a reasonable estimate.

This amounts to:

• 56–91 grams per day for the average male.

• 46–75 grams per day for the average female.

This means that if we consider the below stats – 1 gram of beef protein needs 1.02 sqm:

• an average man can use up to 92.82 sqm per day

• an average female can use up to 76.50 sqm per day

My own makeover

The original chart is a bar chart, so I had to look over some alternatives in order to emphasize the land area and the differences between the beef ant the other types of food.

So I have made a dot matrix.

Why? Because it can highlight both: the size (like 1 square meter of land) and the comparison between dimensions:
