Graph: The World's Billionaires 2012 (Part 2)

Which country and continent has the most billionaires? This Part 2 on the World's Billionaires, based on the list recently released by Forbes, shows the number of billionaires by country. [In this case, the country refers to the country where the billionaire has citizenship.]
Data Source: Forbes
From the chart, you can see that the US has by far the largest number of billionaires (425), in fact, more than the next 7 countries combined. Russia and China are next with almost 100 billionaires each. The total number of countries with at least one billionaire is 59. In South America, Brazil is the country with the most billionaires.

This next chart shows the number of billionaires by continent. North America has the most, because of the large number in the US. Europe is second, followed by Asia.
