Upload data

Please contact Gapminder if you or your organization has data that might be interesting to display in Gapminder World or a similar graph. Please explain the type of data you have and how it was collected and we will see how and if it can be displayed in a Gapminder graph. Typically such a display requires data for countries available over a longer period of time
