  1. Hey!
    I am an ardent Ugandan (East Africa) researcher on Monitoring & Evaluation tools and I must say I have been overwhelmed by your ingenious invention.
    I found the GAPMINDER at unstats.un.org

  2. I would like to adapt this software for my purposes (some detailed health care data). Is there a way to do this?

  3. Google has a free version of this software built into its Spreadsheets application. Go to Google docs and look at the help for Spreadsheets.

  4. hey iam a biotec , information tecnology and a business student ,, yes iam in a need of any software which can present the statistics in a fun manner ,,, or is their any way to get these software ,,please help me

  6. I work with the National Natural Parks in Colombia. This tool might be an incredible solution for monitoring information issues.

  7. Amazing! Thank you for the treat!

    Can you please specify how to find the ‘free version of the software’ in Google Docs.
    otherwise an incredible tool and i can’t wait to start using it. wish i was back at school

  10. Hey would anyone be able to provide me with more information with regards to using the built-in software in the google docs application.

  11. Dear Damjan,

    I think Lerman is refferign to the Motion Chart, a gadget within Google Spreadsheet that lets you do bubble graphs and place them on you own blog or website. We cant offer any support on that but we have made a quick guide to it on this site:

  12. are the data that shown, is real. If yes, from vere the program take the data

    thanks

  13. Great tutorial, fantastic resource for visualizing data. The Google gadget is part of a new development within our own site that I believe you will be interested in, and which should be released soon.

  14. Is it possible to split the data bubbles into the regional subgroups, as Mr. Rosling did in his TED presentation? He used that to illustrate the point that not every region in Africa displayed the same rate of HIV infection. I believe he was able to split one of the bubbles into quarters of income level, and the Kenyan bubble into various regions/tribal areas.

  15. Dear Ajac, thank you for your question, it is not possible to split the bubbles in Gapminder World, those presentation with split bubbles are standalone flash-presentations. To be able to split a bubble into regions or other sub-groups like gender or income levels you first have to have data on those sub-levels. That is ard to find for many countries and especially over time.

    But those we have and made presentations of can be found under Downloads on gapminder.org.
