How Many Animators are there in the World?

Ever wondered how many animators there are in the world? Well so did we! We created this map using “Animator” as a filter on Linkedin for all registered and current animators in various countries (Sorry if we missed yours!) and saw some interesting stats. We then used an interactive map to give you a good idea. Can you guess which country has the most?

Update: Thank you for all our friends who are helping us getting closer to accurate stats, we’re updating countries according to what they call an animator in their language #LanguageBarriers. Please mail us if you can give us correct translations!

*France,Ireland,Chile updated (Thanks for help listed on each country). Japan Animator board contacted for accurate numbers.
