I Love Graphs

I love graphs, especially moving graphs on wealth and lifespan narrated by a European dude (ht Coyote Blog).

One question I had after watching the video. What caused the huge drop and recovery in life expectancy in China in 1958-1959?


  1. Yeah, graphs rock.

    Rob, that coincides with the first starvation deaths of the great leap forward, doesn't it?

  2. I knew you would come through for me Aaron. That must be what it was.

  3. That was an awesome post, Rob.

  4. Here is Dr. Rosling's website:
    It has lots of other trends and data and you can actually pick out specific countries that you would like to follow. Very cool stuff.
