Mind the Gap!

The internet is truly a wonderful place – this tool, GapMinder, is hard to describe – you just have to check it out. If you’re even remotely nerdy, this will bring you hours of fun and distraction.

Some tidbits:

– In 2003, only 13% of adult females in Burkina Faso were literate
– In the same year, Koweit was at 84%.

– In 2003, the income share held by the lowest 20% of the population was 3.8% in Peru, 6% in Nepal, 9.3% in Pakistan, 6.5% in Sierra Leone and 2.6% in Brazil.

Love it!
