Data in Gapminder World

Gapminder Documentation describes the methods, sources and data used to produce the various datasets of gapminder. The data itself is available through excel files. There is normally one documentation for each indicator, but sometimes several indicators are described in one documentation.

Each documentation has a version number. Whenever we update the data or make other significant changes in the documentation we make a new version. On this page you find the latest version of each documentation and dataset. We might make minor changes to the documentation without calling it a new version, only the date of uploading will change in that case, not the version number.
