Gapminder: A Different Taste of Statistics

Statistics as Bubbles

Gapminder is a non- profit organisations which focus on global sustainable development. With the help of user friendly statistics Gapminder assist UNDP to achieve millennium development goals. It provides data about national and international level covering social, economical and environmental indicators. I believe you will enjoy once you will taste the statistics with Gapminder. You know the most the most interesting thing I like in Gapminder is the moving numbers.

Here I am sharing some more information which is available on the website http://www.gapminder.org/about-gapminder/.

“Gapminder was founded in Stockholm by Ola Rosling, Anna Rosling Rönnlund and Hans Rosling on February 25, 2005. Gapminder is registered as a Foundation at Stockholm County Administration Board (Länstyrelsen i Stockholm) with registration number (organisationsnummer) 802424-7721. (The constitution can be found here)

Gapminder does not award any grants. It is an operating foundation that provides sevices as defined by the board, sometimes as collaborative projects with universities, UN organisations, public agencies and non-governmental organisations.

The initial activity was to continue development of the Trendalyzer software. This software unveils the beauty of statistical time series by converting boring numbers into enjoyable, animated and interactive graphics. The current version of Trendalyzer is available since March 2006 as Gapminder World, a web-service displaying time series of development statistics for all countries.

In March 2006 Google acquired Trendalyzer from the Gapminder Foundation and the team of developers who formerly worked for Gapminder has joined Google in California since April 2007. (History of Gapminder)”
