200 Countries, 200 Years, 4 Minutes

Many say wealth can’t make you healthy. Wealthy people aren’t necessarily happy people around the world. But you will be totally blown away by what real numbers have to say. Watch this 4 minute video where a history of 200 years of 200 countries crunched into 4 minutes to show how wealth and health are totally related and complimented.

Instead of studying history for one year at the university, you can watch this video for less than five minutes.Income per person (GDP per capita) is adjusted for inflation and for differences in costs of living (purchasing power) across countries. You can play with the data yourself in Gapminder World. This is a short clip from the longer film The Joy of Stats©Wingspan Productions for BBC, 2010.
