The Best Stats You've Ever Seen - Hans Rosling
Every month we scour the internet seeking out data science videos that educate and delight.
I hope these videos prove to be a valuable resource to you and that you will visit regularly (and invite your friends too).

As this is the first video we're sharing, we are proud to present to you our very favourite video of all - The Best Stats You've Ever Seen by the late, great Hans Rosling.
Hans Rosling worked at the frontline of health crises around the globe including Ebola in west Africa. He was named one of Time's 100 Most Influential People globally in 2012 and he co-founded Médecins sans Frontièrs Sweden.
He was also a practised sword-swallower.
In this video Hans teaches us that - through a series of stats pulled together from the World Bank, United Nations and more - everyone is better off than in years past, with less global poverty, life expectancy increased significantly, and the gap between the richest and poorest slowly shrinking.
This talk is an amazing tour de force that introduced the world to Hans Rosling. Delivered with the drama and urgency of a sportscaster, it has been watched more than two million times on YouTube.
Hans died of pancreatic cancer in early 2017, and he will be sorely missed...
Enjoy the video!
