The link I used now points to the new interface, but I see only country data. Where did the US States data go? question 2 2 1 comment 7794369 Quick suggestion for clarity 2018-09-19T16:21:03Z 2018-09-19T16:21:03Z Brad J Kallenberg brad_j_kallenberg On your header--"Families in the world by income"-- (etc) you might want to add the word "monthly" before "Income". I use this with students who might not be quick to figure out the numbers are monthly amounts. idea 0 1 1 create 7793220 Population pyramids cannot be shown for single countries ... 2018-09-17T07:17:02Z 2018-09-16T04:29:20Z Samir Benjelloun samir_benjelloun For some reasons the chart type "Population Pyramids" cannot be shown for single countries ... No option to select single countries like the case of other chart types. <br /><br /> Thanks in advance! question 2 3 1 comment 7792326 Data GONE 2018-09-14T15:26:04Z 2018-09-13T18:48:38Z Alannah Lucas alannah_lucas Hi, so I am doing a project looking at the suicide rate vs income specifically looking at Hungary vs Poland. And a week ago I was able to look at the rates from 1956. And today I go in and they only have data from 1990??? What is going on? Why is all of the data from pre-1990 gone? question 1 2 1 comment 7791630 Would you like to help me to animate the hourly data lines? 2018-09-12T12:19:39Z 2018-09-12T12:19:39Z S Ren s_ren_kj1t4ygl8dqn2 problem 0 1 1 create 7782856 Factfulness Poster Easily Printable 2018-09-05T23:08:07Z 2018-08-24T20:43:16Z Kim Garcia kim_garcia_2550234 Could you make very simple posters--such as the chart about reducing bias--available? Google drive slides are wonderful, but sometimes you want something very simple to tape to your door or handout in class for students creating projects. Thank you for all this work. I can't tell you how much it means to my students. If you could just help with making it as simple as possible to print something, that would be wonderful. question 1 2 1 comment factfulness, accessibility, tools 7775345 Indicators that show the destruction of our planet 2018-09-05T20:37:06Z 2018-08-08T17:17:28Z Miguel Vela miguel_vela It is really nice to see how data in Gapminder shows the progress of humanity. But if, instead of focusing so much on our species, we start adding indicators to evaluate how the planet as a whole is doing, I bet there will be less reason for celebration. Good indicators: global healthy coral reefs area, global rain-forest area, number of extinct species per year, amount of global warming gas in the atmosphere, amount of plastic in the ocean, number of mammals/birds living in the wild vs number of mammals/birds living in cages, land area in the hands of multinational companies vs protected land areas... I can continue, but think that I made my point. <br /> It would also be interesting, in order to understand why this is always going to worse, to add indicators that show peoples awareness and concern with these subjects. idea 10 5 4 comment 7782533 Dollar Street with CO2 Emissions per Income Level 2018-09-05T09:42:59Z 2018-08-24T07:26:46Z IngridMoysset ingridmoysset Emissions per capita is organized on a national level on It would be helpful to have a graph with the four income levels on dollar street, showing how personal income and economic prosperity is related to CO2 emissions. <br /><br /> For example, there are level 4 people in India, who have CO2 emissions corresponding to level 4 countries. Households which have level 4 emissions could have a better representation if they were compared on a household or personal level rather than national. (India is on 1,84 tonnes per capita.) <br /><br /> I think it would be helpful if we, people on level 4, could see ourselves as a global community of primary emitters - and potentially primary drivers of sustainability. <br /><br /> <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a> <a href="" rel="nofollow"><img alt="" src="" /></a> idea 3 2 1 comment 7787559 The "example" links for the "new chart from your data" dialog are not working 2018-09-04T11:22:17Z 2018-09-04T11:22:17Z misccold . misccold <a href="" rel="nofollow"><img alt="" src="" /></a> problem 0 1 1 create 7783401 Why? Why is the rich not given a group? 2018-08-27T14:06:14Z 2018-08-26T14:34:33Z Dave Einert dave_einert In the book fact ful ness it is written there are 4 groups of people but and I am at page 38 and your four groups of people does not address the very rich. Some make more than 50000 an hour. That appears a bigger difference between group one and four. I put the book down last night and deciding wither to read more or not because it appears that your group is masking a reality that there is an effort to hide. I turn 63 today and work full time a US veteran and hope to retire within two years and yes I am fortunate. My father grew up in a dirt floor cabin, ploughed the fields with mules and served in WWII with his body wore out because of hard labor. Why is there not a group showing the rich? What is the point of showing the have and have nots? question 4 2 1 comment 7782124 Russia HIV stats missing, why? 2018-08-27T12:20:07Z 2018-08-23T13:09:51Z Anton Skornyakov anton_skornyakov Could find Russia in the HIV country list.

I wanted to inform you about a problem that the Gapminder platform has, I wanted to compare the Income with the external debt of the United States. I wanted to see how much it had increased in recent years, because I know that the United States has several debts, especially with China. But that option does not appear on your platform and I wanted to know why. I do not know if it is a mistake or if only you do not have the necessary information, which I find strange because everyone knows that the United States has a big debt. <br /><br /> I am looking forward to your response. Thank you very much. problem 1 2 1 comment
