Title

Annual Iron Production and Immigration

Description

Modern Man in the Making, p. 73. Neurath's Modern Man in the Making (1939) used Isotype to illuminate the social, scientific, and political factors that shaped the modern world. This graphic shows the connection between U.S. iron production and immigration. Greater industrial production, represented by the production of unrefined pig iron, creates the conditions for increased immigration. To show increases in iron production and immigration Isotype uses more symbols not bigger symbols. Neurath argued that doing so gives a more direct, truthful, and easily-grasped picture of the underlying facts.
