This is a work in progress project – your feedback is very welcome!
You can access the content in 2 ways:
The Data-Visualization Presentations
These click-through presentations give an overview of how our world is changing.
Data Entries are dedicated to a specific topic – child mortality, food supply, democratization, war deaths, world poverty, life-satisfaction and 50 other data-entries are already online. .
Each Data-Entry is split into 4 parts:
- The Long-Run Perspective – How did the particular aspect change over time?
- The Determinants & Consequences – What is driving this change and what does it mean for humanity?
- Definitions & Data Quality – What do we measure, what can we measure and how reliable is that data?
- Data Sources – I want to know more and want to check the data myself. Where can I find the data?
You always access the data-entries through the drop-down menu on the left.
The gallery below gives you an overview of the most popular data-entries.
Funding Request & Contact:
To expand this web publication I am in contact with a number of partners – research institutions here in Oxford and international data providers and institutions that are keen to collaborate with OurWorldInData.org. To continue this work and to present a more comprehensive picture of how the world is changing I am currently looking for funding. If you know an institution that might be interested in funding this web project, please contact me via www.MaxRoser.com or via the research institute that I am working for – EMoD at the University of Oxford. A research proposal is available.
