James Higham reproduces a graphic from Amfortas re house size in selected countries:
... which got me thinking.
I looked up the ratio of arable land per person (average of 2009-11), and then added Amfortas' statistics:
As you see, the smaller the amount of arable land per capita, the smaller the house - except for Australia, which is still a young country in terms of immigration and development, and also has limited water resources.
Taking it one step further, I divided the house size by the arable land per person:
We now have two outliers, Australia and the UK. The real story here, I think: Britain is far too crowded and dependent on imported food.
