Gapminder: world statistics over time

Gapminder: world statistics over time


Gapminder is an interactive utility for examining world statistics. It’s extremely cool if you’re curious about things like the relationship between income and life expectancy or carbon emissions and internet use. There is a scrubber for adjusting the date, so you can see how the data points have changed over time.

I wonder if internet use per capita will someday be negatively correlated with carbon emissions (ie. people working from home).
