Data in Gapminder World

Added By allimaupin

The ambition with Gapminder World is to enable the display of data for all the countries and territories of the world. Therefore, the guiding principle has been to include as many entities as possible for which data might be available.

Please note that the inclusion of any geographical area in this data set is based solely on data availability and convenience for possible users. The choice of names for any of the included countries and territories is likewise made solely for the convenience of users. The notes on international status are based on Wikipedia. Neither this nor the inclusion/exclusion of a specific country or territory implies a stated opinion of Gapminder regarding the legal or political status of the geographical area in question. Neither do the names imply a stated opinion of Gapminder on the correct naming of an entity.

The number of countries and territories to include is arbitrary, but Gapminder has decided to include the following entities:

  • 192 UN members (as of April 2008)
  • 51 other entities listed in the “List of countries” in Wikipedia (2008-05-13). These include the Vatican, dependent territories, special entities and disputed territories. They have excluded the two “sub-dependencies” Ascension Island and Tristan da Cunha, although they are listed by Wikipedia.
  • 4 French overseas territories (Guadeloupe, Martinique, Reunion and French Guyana), although they are considered an integral part of France
  • 10 former states
  • 2 ad-hoc areas: “Serbia excluding Kosovo” and “the Channel Islands”. The latter is the collective name of the two dependent territories Guernsey and Jersey.

The data can be downloaded in Microsoft Excel, viewed as a Google document, or seen as a visualization. Data is based on or provided by BP, CDIAC, CME, CRED, FAO, Forbes, IARC, IEA, IHME, ILO, Lancet, MDG Indicators, MRC-HPA Center for Environment and Health, OECD QWIDS, TIMSS, UN, UNAIDS, UNESCO, UNICEF, WHO, WHOSIS, World Bank, and WDI.
