For at least three reasons, it’s hard to have a favorite statistics site. I am a visual learner, so I usually find myself creating charts to understand numbers. Recently, I had to identify desirable international markets for an ecommerce site. I found myself looking for macro-indicators. Especially with internet familiarity and risk aversion metrics. That is when I found gapminder. It is amazing!
If you don’t believe me, watch the “Let My Dataset Change Your Mindset” speech from Gapminder founder Hans Rosling.
