Rosling`s Gapminder – Comparing by Statistical Parameters

leave a comment »

Hans Gösta Rosling (*27.07.1948 in Sweden) developed the Gapminder, a visualisation tool for statistical data. It shows the development of different nations throughout the times by different parameters like the GDP per capita, birth rate, education or simply the “best teeth in the world”.

Visit his website at or get his speeches at the TED:

“And the drama of this world which we may call “globalised” is that Asia, Arab countries and Latin America are much more ahead in being healthy, educated and having human resources than they are economically.”

“That`s when I believe statistics, when my grandma verifies statistics. It`s the best way in verifying history.”
