200 Countries & 200 Years in 4 Minutes, Presented by Hans Rosling

Hans Rosling, a pro­fes­sor of glob­al health at Swe­den’s Karolin­s­ka Insti­tute, focus­es on ‘dis­pelling com­mon myths about the so-called devel­op­ing world’ (as his TED bio well notes). And he has estab­lished a rep­u­ta­tion for pre­sent­ing data in extreme­ly imag­i­na­tive ways. Just watch the video above, an out­take from the BBC show “The Joy of Stats”). In four min­utes, Rosling visu­al­ly traces the health of 200 coun­tries over 200 years, using 120,000 data points, and we end up with a lit­tle rea­son for opti­mism. Great stuff… Thanks to @Sheerly for flag­ging this.
