That stats package he used for the health data is available at gapminder.org . It's as cool as it looks and it's VERY effective pedagogically with students. It has all kinds of economic and demographic data. I used it to show economic growth across the world since the early 1700s. The impact of the Industrial Revolution is unmistakable.
