Can You Help?

This website is in imminent danger of being shut down. It has been online since 1995, but the personal circumstances of the owner, Malcolm Farnsworth, are such that economies have to be made. Server costs and suchlike have become prohibitive. At the urging of people online, I have agreed to see if Patreon provides a solution. More information is available at the Patreon website. If you are able to contribute even $1.00/month to keep the site running, please click the Patreon button below.

200 Years of History in 4 Minutes

This video shows Dr. Hans Rosling charting the improvements in health and income around the world over the past 200 years.

The 4-minute clip is an extract from The Joy of Stats. The complete video of The Joy of Stats can be seen here.

Rosling’s GapMinder website describes itself as a “non-profit venture – a modern ‘museum’ on the Internet – promoting sustainable global development and achievement of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.” It was founded in Stockholm in 2005.
