Gapminder's Hans Rosling Brings Poverty, Health Data to Life at Wilson Center
Date:5/21/2009

WASHINGTON, May 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- See health and economic data like you've never seen it before. Using his innovative Trendalyzer animation program, statistics guru Hans Rosling will show how reproductive health affects poverty, maternal mortality, and other development data. He will also illustrate how the convergence of conditions around the world has made the division of countries into "Western" and "developing" categories an outdated concept.

On Tuesday, May 26, at 3:00 p.m. at the Wilson Center, Rosling will bring global health and population data to life using the Trendalyzer visualization software. In 2007, Trendalyzer was bought by Google, which has recently launched a new data search feature that uses the software.

Rosling's dynamic presentations showing international statistics as moving, interactive graphics have been highlights at international conferences, including the visionary technology summit TED: http://tinyurl.com/hansroslingted

Rosling is a professor of international health at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm and director of the Gapminder Foundation, which developed Trendalyzer. While serving as a district medical officer in northern Mozambique from 1979-1981, he discovered konzo, a formerly unrecognized paralytic disease that is induced by hunger and badly processed cassava.
