Update: For question 9, I'm looking for the significance of that red cell in the Norway row within the dataset itself. I'm not looking for social or political implications of that data point.
Second Update: Here's the ecological footprint data from the Global Footprint Network. You might need to look at it for some of the questions on the problem set.
