The Trendalyzer

Are you tired of looking through heaps of boring data…and coming up with nothing? Look no further. Introducing…the Trendalyzer. A new piece of software which enables you to access and view data in amazingly new ways.

Created by Hans Rosling, this software animates statistics, thus allowing users to actually visualize movements of statistical data rather than just looking at a bunch of numbers. It is especially beneficial to those interested in analyzing the extent of Millennium Development Goals achievement across countries, for which free software is available on their website.

Presently, only parts of the Trendalyzer are available for free download. However, Google, new owners of the software, plan to make their statistics available for free on the Internet.

The Gapminder foundation is also intensifying efforts to make all official statistics produced by international agencies around the world, available on the Internet and free of charge. Thanks to their persistence, the UN statistical Division have responded, making their data accessible and free of charge as of May 1st this year.

Try it out for free, here. I must warn you though – this software can be highly addictive šŸ™‚
