Although Benjamin Disraeli had a famously low opinion of them, statistics are an essential tool to understanding how things work, especially in the field of social development. The main problem, however, is that they can be hard to interpret and boring to read. How can we change this?Well, StatPlanet is a great free application designed to allow users to investigate demographic, education, environment, health and socio-economic indicators from almost every corner of the earth. It makes things more interesting by presenting the stats in easy-to-interpret, color-coded maps that can be navigated by clicking and grabbing and using the mouse wheel to zoom in and out. Information can also be viewed in various alternative formats, such as simple graphs, proportional maps and bar charts.
