While it was always possible to download the data files underlying the graphs in Gapminder World, we have now made it a lot easier. Each data file now has download links which allow download to Excel (xls), Open Office (ods) or even PDF files.
To access this functionality, click on the grid symbol next to the data to view the data, then click the “Download” tab. Then click the link for the desired format.
We have also improved the information about many of the indicator, including better definitions and clearer titles.
