If ever proof were needed that even the most boring data can be made highly interesting if presented the right way, this is it.
World Population Stats made dynamically fun!
Thanks to BBC, 2.5 million people have already enjoyed this but it DOES pack 200 years of history into 4 minutes. It also drives home the key dynamic for us all to internalize about the natural impact which China (and India) are bringing to the world today and why ultimately it's a very good thing. An exhilarating 4 minute ride through 2 centuries of global history and a peek around the corner to tomorrow's world.
Wealth and health in 200 countries over more than 100 years, cleverly illustrated!
I wish statistics at school had been this interesting
A pretty sad stae of affairs, cool presentation!
Hans Rosling's 200 Countries, 200 Years, 4 Minutes - The Joy of Stats - BBC Four
Amazing! I remember I wrote some essays stating a little different thing, but based on the same core idea: World's population evolved mostly in the last 200 years...
I've beeb wondering why so few people notice this. Now, this movie proves my point in a very obvious way: A video stats!
this is a fascinating historical perspective on the progress of various countries over the years. well done!
Interesting visual presentation of 200 years of health and income data of 200 countries around the world.
Check out this fascinating video about the history of global development. From the video: Hans Rosling's famous lectures combine enormous quantities of public data with a sport's commentator's style to reveal the story of the world's past, present and future development. Now he explores stats in a way he has never done before - using augmented reality animation. In this spectacular section of 'The Joy of Stats' he tells the story of the world in 200 countries over 200 years using 120,000 numbers - in just four minutes. Plotting life expectancy against income for every country since 1810, Hans shows how the world we live in is radically different from the world most of us imagine.
