Gapminder: Statistics for a Fact-Based World View

So it’s been a while, and I’m not going to promise a whole lot of regular posts (pretty busy at the moment!), but I thought I’d share this really cool website with you. I’ve been going along to Engineers Without Borders, a society at Glasgow Uni that looks to use engineering to overcome some of the issues facing developing nations, and at the meeting yesterday they showed a TED talk by a guy called Hans Rosling. He’s a statistician, and has made a phenomenal site which compares statistic data from just about every country in the world. I realise that description makes it sound pretty dull, but check out the TED video, and it’ll be explained much better.

Anyhow, here’s the link: Gapminder. Hope you find it interesting!
