Enter the details about your population, building type, and production rate into the calculator to determine your resource needs in Anno 1800.

## Resource Calculation Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the resource needs from your population and production rate.

Resource Needs = (Population * Production Rate) / 100

Variables:

- Resource Needs is the amount of resources needed to sustain the population
- Population is the total number of inhabitants
- Production Rate is the efficiency of resource production (%)

To calculate the resource needs, multiply the population by the production rate and divide the result by 100.

## What is Resource Calculation in Anno 1800?

Resource calculation in Anno 1800 refers to the process of determining the amount of resources needed to support your population and maintain your buildings’ productivity. This involves understanding your population size, the type of buildings you have, and the efficiency of your production processes. Proper resource calculation ensures the smooth functioning of your city and the happiness of your citizens.

## How to Calculate Resource Needs?

The following steps outline how to calculate the resource needs using the given formula.

- First, determine your population based on the inhabitants in your city.
- Next, determine the type of building and its production rate.
- Use the formula from above: Resource Needs = (Population * Production Rate) / 100.
- Finally, calculate the resource needs by plugging in the values.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
