From the Little Ice age and through the industrial era the world is getting richer and healthier
Hans Rosling explores stats in a way he has never done before - using augmented reality animation. In this spectacular section of 'The Joy of Stats' he tells the story of the world in 200 countries over 200 years using 120,000 numbers - in just under five minutes. Plotting life expectancy against income for every country since 1810 in the little ice age (LIA) and into the industrial revolution, Hans shows how the world we live in is radically different from the world most of us imagine. We are getting richer and healthier.
