World Development Chart

This scatterplot, created by Gapminder, Inc., lets users plot a number of demographic variables and see the log transformation of those variables for numerous countries and income groups. Users can also see the information for any year from 1800 to projected information to 2030. The graph is interactive by nature. It allows users to easily set different limits and then see how the graph responds. Video and pdf tutorials are available for best use of the software. You can even email your created graph directly from the site.
