The full version of Hans Rosling’s Joy of Stats is now available in its entirety (below).

Funny thing about the way memes circulate — I passed the virus from geeks circles to the finance community back in November, then spent the next 4 weeks receiving emails telling me that I had to see the video!

Anyway, here is the full one hour presentation:


Documentary which takes viewers on a rollercoaster ride through the wonderful world of statistics to explore the remarkable power thay have to change our understanding of the world, presented by superstar boffin Professor Hans Rosling, whose eye-opening, mind-expanding and funny online lectures have made him an international internet legend.

As of now, there is 2764 views — lets see what this looks like in a week . . .

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    “Medical statistics are a little bit like a bikini: what they reveal is suggestive, but what they conceal is vital.” — Irving R. Levine.

    Irving R. Levine was on the Tonight Show back in the 80′s or 90′s where he repeated this line, but removed the term Medical. Classic line.

    Another quote I can’t remember who said nor will I repeat it accurately was this, “The data doesn’t speak for itself. I’ve sat in rooms that are full of computers with data, and I’ve never heard it say a thing.”
