Thanks for linking but The Guardian didn’t map these figures, nor did it do any of the data gathering or analysis – it was a company called ITO World – there are more details about the project at:

Often the datablog shows other people’s work but the person who puts it on the blog get’s the byline. It is slighly confusing so just wanted to clarify and make sure the right people get credit for their work.
