Hans Rosling - Public Health Statistics

Hans Rosling is a public health statistician. He talks about the millennium development goals and gives meaning to some numbers in global public health. He has lots of very nice, colorful bubble charts!

In particular, he confronts the notion of western and developing countries. Towards the end, there is a graph that shows decrease in child mortality over time for every country, and the trends are amazing! Then he reads a UN report that labels countries like South Korea, Singapore, and Qatar as developing even though they have a lot of wealth and low child mortality.

Rosling has a lot of other TED talks that I'll probably be watching.
