Unlike turkeys, time is flying, with Thanksgiving weekend already upon us here in Canada. In looking forward to palating pounds of poultry in a couple of days, we thought it would be interesting (if not terribly insightful) to compare turkey consumption across a few selected countries.

To do this we used 2013 data from the Turkey Farmers of Canada and the World Bank, with the results somewhat surprising us. One example: would you have guessed that we're further behind Israel than Mexico is behind us, as measured by the number of kilograms of turkey we consume in a year?

Check out our latest viz here, and have a warm, safe, and enjoyable Thanksgiving weekend!
