German newspaper Berlienr Morgenpost has created an interactive data visualization of rental prices in German cities, highlighting areas where monthly rent exceeds 33 percent of the average income. The visualization analyzes 1,375 postcodes in 79 cities and reveals that rent prices in one tenth of all postal areas exceeds 33 percent of average income, which is considered prohibitively expensive.
