The best stats you've ever seen

As researchers in neuroscience we are dealing with statistics everyday: sample size, effect size, statistical significance...

In this talk at the TED conference, Rans Hosling is dealing with huge sample size: the population of the world!

http://www.ted.com/talks/hans_rosling_shows_the_best_stats_you_ve_ever_seen.html

In this charismatic and engaging talk, Rans Hosling delivers a powerful and informative message on the socioeconomic progression of countries of the world in the past 50 years.

All these data are open access in the gapminder website (http://www.gapminder.org/world). Displaying data in such a way really helps in understanding correlations between various parameters such as life expectancy and fertility rate or child survival and income. It’s fascinating to see the tremendous changes that occurred in the world in the past half-century.

As a scientist, this talk also demonstrates that statistics can be displayed in an interesting and dynamic way!

"The problem is not ignorance... it's preconceived ideas..."
