Income per person (i.e. GDP per capita) has been updated to 2007.
Here is one example for 2007 where income per person is plotted against Life expectancy at birth.
Note that the GDP data will be revised in a near future, taking into account the latest round of PPP from the ICP.
After several months of testing, a new service of Gapminder is now available.
During the process of development, different geographical regions within the same country could have very different speed of development, and this may cause significant internal gaps. By using statistics animation technology, these gaps could be visualized and the change over time could also be displayed. For example, you could compare the development of Utah from US and Shanghai from China during the last 3 decades: Utah vs Shanghai
We would strongly recommended that you read the “PDF tutorial” and the “Caveat” to the left of the graph first.
On request we now add the new indicator “Public & private health expenditure (% of GDP)”.
It shows how big share of the average person’s income is being spent on health care, whether it is through the tax they pay, the health insurance they have or through out-of pocket expenses.
Here the indicator is compared with Infant Mortality in Gapminder World.
Here is a link to the spreadsheet of the indicator.
Unfortunatly the indicator only covers the years 2000-2004 (with three exceptions), so any tips on where we can find data covering more years are most welcomed.
