Can the population growth be stopped? Is Brazil, Egypt and Bangladesh now improving faster than Sweden ever did? And can everyone live on the same level as the rich countries?
In a new lecture series, filmed in a studio at the Swedish Television, Hans Rosling answer yes to all questions above.
The lecture has been divided into three videos that you can find in the video-section.
Part 1 – What stops population Growth?
Part 2 – Poor beat rich in MDG race

We have made an update of the indicator Life expectancy at birth. To see this indicator together with Income per capita, follow this link.
The biggest change is that we now show this indicator for 155 countries back to 1800, although in most cases, the early estimates are based on a very rough model. This full dataset is not suitable for statistical analysis. Please consult the documentation for information about sources and data quality. A spreadsheet with detailed source information will be added later.
You can also see some tentative information about data quality in the graph, look for this under “For advanced users” -> “Data quality”, or use this link. Red is “very poor quality data” while blue is “very good quality data”. Read more about our data quality ranking in this previous blogpost.
