Videographic: Global fertility

A good video about global population trends since 1950.  The is rich with charts, maps and data (from Hans Rosling it would appear) many about accelerated population growth, total fertility rates.  China, Iran, South Korea and France are all individually showcased to show how global patterns were at play within local settings.

Daniel Lindahl's curator insight, March 21, 11:54 PM

This video shows how the global population has changed throughout time. It illustrates how the population went on a massive incline, and based on the DTM, will soon go onto the decline as more countries become developed.

I find this tool to be very useful and interesting as well. However, I am not surprised as to how low the United States ranks on most statistics, especially Education. The United States has the potential and the resources to be in the top 3 in terms of education, but due to policy differences within the states an as a country at large we fall short of that. We know what needs to be done, but the right methods/policy are considered too "socialist" therefore they can't be done. It obviously works, just take a look at where Finland ranks in terms of Education.

I agree that this website is very interesting and it will surely not be the last time a visit it. I am also not surprised either on our educational ranking, but at least America is ranked 1st when it comes to incarcerating our own citizens. Makes you wonder how great the negative correlation between education and crime really is?

This is a dense resource, I will have to come back time and time again to continue to compare nations and view all available statistics. I particularly liked the breakdown of American government demographics, such as being 80th in number of women in government.
