We updated the data for proportion of adults living with HIV and number of people living with HIV. The % of adults had been slightly revised. The dataset for “Number of people living with HIV” had been revised backwards up to 1990 by UNAIDS. See the newest estimates in the Gapminder World.
We updated maternal mortality ratio and the number of maternal deaths with the most recent IHME data. You can also find WHO’s most recent MMR estimates (up to 2010) under “For advanced users”. See the updated maternal health data in the Gapminder World.
We updated the aid received per person. The data source is the World Bank and values are displayed in current US$. See the bubbles in the Gapminder World.
We updated hydroelectric and nuclear electricity production (total and per person). We changed the source for both indicators. We also changed the indicator for nuclear power, which now displays electricity produced by nuclear power plants used to generate electricity. See the new indicator in the Gapminder World.
We updated Oil Production (total and per capita) and Electricity use (total and per capita). We changed sources for both indicators. To see the new data, go to the Gapminder World.
We updated the democracy score, so it now extends to 2011. It is based on Polity IV, but we also added some gapfilling for year under foreign occupation and some other extensions. You can see the data in gapminder world. For information on how we extended the data set, see the data sheet.
We updated received ODA, in both % of GNI and constant 2010 US$. Please note that the currency was changed from constant 2009$, which led to small changes in the dataset. See the updated version in the Gapminder World.
We updated the total GDP in PPP$ (inflation-adjusted). Due to backward revisions in the population data, there are backward revisions to previous versions of the indicator. See the world’s income in the Gapminder World.
We updated the CO2 emissions per person, and energy use total and per person. See the per capita CO2 emission in the Gapminder World.
We updated the lifetime risk of maternal death per 1000 women. See the global development in the Gapminder World.
We updated the Ratio of girls to boys in primary and secondary education. See how the proportions have changed over time in the Gapminder World.
We updated the data for yearly CO2 emission and cumulative CO2 emission. Some backward revisions for recent years were done. See how the CO2 emission is rising in the Gapminder World.
We updated the data for urban population (total population and percent of population) and urban population growth. Enjoy the stats in the Gapminder World.
We updated GDP per capita and total (in constant 2000 US$). For technical reasons we changed the data source to World Bank (which provides the same data as the previous source, UN Statistics Division). Some backward revisions were undertaken. See the newest available data in the Gapminder World.
We updated the data for Population Density and Children out of school. There seem to be backward revisions for the stats for Children out of school (total, male and female). Watch the global progress in the Gapminder World.
