What you will see is here is one amazing video that is a must see for everyone who likes or hates statistics. However, this story is not about statistics or numbers per se. Rather, it is a video story about the health and wealth of 200 countries in the world over the last 200 years and beyond in just 4 minutes flat. How is it done? A Swedish professor and super star of sorts with the locals, Hans Rosling, teaches global health and uses visualization as part of his work to communicate the wealth and health of countries by plotting 120,000 numbers and displaying them on an animated correlation chart which appears before him like a hologram.
He is the only individual that I know that communicates this historical progression of life expectancy against wealth for every country since 1810 in the most enjoyable way anyone can think of. In short, Professor Hans illustrates a world far different from what most of us imagine. The facts speak for themselves in this spectacular video of human evolution, but Professor Hans communicates this information in a way everyone understands. Now, sit back and enjoy the show.
