Hans Rosling: Stats That Reshape Your World-View

Professor Rosling opens this TEDtalk showing test results of the brightest Swedish college students and Swedish professors in the area of global child mortality. The professors did better than the students, but only on a par with chimpanzees. Rosling is not lacking in the humor department. Nor is he lacking in wisdom. Fascinating animated graphics (with instant replay!) enlighten us about human population growth, economics, and health. 20-minute video.

Here is the site created by Rosling’s work, with a slew of videos that bring statistics to life.
