I guess that a blog title like that is only going to grab a few people BUT … the others will be missing out.
You’ve no doubt seen the brilliant Gapminder animations – just a fantastic way of dealing with data and telling the story behind it – well – what I didn’t realise is that the data behind the graphs is available for download. There are over 400 large datasets fully sourced and with animations. Categories include:
|For advanced users|
|Labour and employment|
|Trade, aid and investment|
|Poverty and Inequality|
|Births and deaths|
|Geography and infrastructure|
|Technology and infrastructure|
This is a fantastic collection and I strongly urge you to have a look.
I often think that people struggle with data because of the difficulty in making the connection between the data and real life – this is just brilliant.
