The best stats you've ever seen


I used this video in a different class but I think everyone should see it, and it is relevant to our discussion about human population growth.

You've never seen data presented like this. With the drama and urgency of a sportscaster, statistics guru Hans Rosling debunks myths about the so-called "developing world."

And the best part about it is that the software is now available at the Gapminder website so you can play with it yourself and look at changes through time of all sorts of environmental, social and geographical parameters.
