Gapminder country dataData are factual pieces of information -- identified, gathered, and coded systematically to help define or enhance a body of knowledge. While raw data are akin to raw materials, it is through their analysis and visualization that data provide insights. Through insights, knowledge moves forward.

Statistical, textual, and visual types of data include cultural, demographic, economic, financial, geographical, geospatial, historical, meteorological & climatological, qualitative, scientific, transportation data, and more!
