If you have never heard Hans Rosling bring statistics to Life, you are in for a treat.
This is a keynote at the first TED-conference in India where Rosling predicts when China and India will catch up with the United States in terms of income per person. He graphs global economic growth since 1858, depicting some of the main events using images and his animated Gapminder software charts.
You can use Gapminder software for your own presentations by bringing the data you collect to Life. Check out Gapminder World and see how child mortality rates are key to the future health and wealth of nations.
