World-wide sex-search profiles. The world map is color-coded according to the z-score of each individual country’s sex-search time-series. Shades of red represent a higher z-score (larger increase in searches) during Christmas week (on Christmas-centered data). Shades of green represent a higher z-score (larger increase in searches) during Eid-al-Fitr week (on Eid-al-Fitr centered data). Light grey denotes countries with no significant variation above mean in either of these weeks. Dark grey countries are those for which there is no GT data available. Black line represents the equator separating the hemispheres. Built using: https://mapchart.net/.
