The reason why some countries are rich and others poor depends on many things, including the quality of their institutions, the culture they have, the natural resources they find and what latitude they're on.

More about this programme: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00wgq0l Hans Rosling's famous lectures combine enormous quantities of public data with a sport's commentator's style to reveal the story of the world's past, present and future development. Now he explores stats in a way he has never done before - using augmented reality animation. In this spectacular section of 'The Joy of Stats' he tells the story of the world in 200 countries over 200 years using 120,000 numbers - in just four minutes. Plotting life expectancy against income for every country since 1810, Hans shows how the world we live in is radically different from the world most of us imagine.
This is for Assignment 3 in Introduction to Comparative Politics. That assignment tests how well Wilkinson's argument about inequality works among poor countries as well as rich ones. It also shows how to sort the data so you can graph richer countries together and poorer countries together.
This animation looks at different ways to measure poverty and human well-being with a special focus on the Human Development Index. This includes measures of income, education and health comparing Australia, Timor Leste and Bangladesh. Find out more: http://wva.me/1KFRHh7

Nick Hanley from the University of Stirling presents a seminar on the general topic of operationally measuring sustainable development. . The seminar introduces the main ways economists think about the ideas of "sustainability", Nick explains how economists ideas of substitutability between various measures of capital (physical, resource endowments broadly conceived, human capital, and social capital) used to generate long run consumption lead to conflict with ecological notions of capital where substitutability isn't a key idea, but where boundary and threshold notions...and their impact on consumption possibilities...does make a big difference. The empirical part of the seminar shows that trying to operationalize meaningful measures of sustainability is (1) difficult and (2) leads to di...

Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development was adopted in 2015 and the next critical juncture as we move forward towards the implementation of this new development agenda is the development, finalization and implementation of an indicator framework for the goals and targets of sustainable development goals (SDGs). This webinar will provide an overview and highlights of the Global SDG indicators process so far, analyze the global indicators on goals 3 and 5 that have been thus far finalized and identify opportunities and avenues for civil society organizations and advocates to engage with this process on national, regional and global levels.
On November 11, 2014, at 10am PST, Meeting of the Minds and Citiscope co-hosted a 1-hour webinar on new ways to compare the world’s cities using apples-to-apples data. -[ Program ]- The Geneva-based International Organization for Standardization announced in May 2014 that the World Council on City Data (WCCD) has pioneered the first international standard for sustainable cities, ISO 37120: Sustainable development of communities — Indicators for city services and quality of life. The WCCD and ISO 37120 were created by cities, for cities. For the first time ever, urban policymakers will have objective, verified measures to compare their services and performance levels with other cities around the world. It also gives citizens, businesses and civic organizations a new tool for holding loca...
It is estimated that 219 million children (39% of the under 5 years population) living in low and middle income countries are failing to meet their developmental potential. The new United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals for 2030 include access to quality early child development as essential for fairer, inclusive and less poverty stricken societies. Charting advancement towards this goal requires appropriate benchmarks to determine where children in a certain population are in comparison to children in other populations. The accurate measurement of early childhood development is therefore key, and also crucial for directly assessing the effectiveness of intervention programs. The urgent need for culturally appropriate measurement tools has been widely acknowledged and hampers cur...
