Hans Rosling‘s first GapCast is here. Professor Rosling shows how economic growth, public health and sexual rights have changed in Sweden during 300 years. How has life expectancy and GDP per capita of Sweden evolved from 1709 to 2004? He further explains how to use gapminder world in order to make statistics work for development. This is just the first on the series which promises to be a fantastic way to bring development into a visual and entertaining arena, thus further enriching the conversation and our understanding into how to make the “seemingly impossible, possible”.
If you haven’t seen him yet, invest 6 minutes of your time and I bet you won’t regret it. If you watch this and are asking for more, how about sword swallowing at TED? O see our post on Hans Rosling on Africa and its growth.
Want to play with World statistics? Google found Gapminder fascinating and decided to be part of it.
And finally, a very recent achievement on the statistics arena led by Hans Rosling has been that of attaining access to all UN Statistical Division’s data for free from May 1 this year. You can read this and other news at Gapminder.
