…with the best stats you have ever seen by Hans Rosling. This, from TED, a must see site. A slightly dated, yet, relevant link.

I could not embed the video, so, for now, you have to click the link above. It is worth it…

    Hans Gosling has done an amazing bit of presentation and data analysis. It should be a bible for power-point presenters, public speakers, data analysts and most importantly college professors, who think that the only way to convey advancted information is boring, dull and colorless soup of numbers.

  3. Hans Gosling gave a follow up talk on the same topic and the ending is AWESOME.

  4. Google has bought the Trendalyzer software that was developed by Hans Gossling’s team and the data is now available on the web.

    I have been testing variables against population and I am surprised to see that there seems no correlation with what I had hoped to see – I have always assumed that many of our problems are linked to our massive population problem.
