Hans Rosling’s ‘The Joy of Stats’ is a new television documentary scheduled to air on BBC. It explores data gathering and statistical analysis and uses holographic inforgraphics to help explain the concepts.

Professor Hans Rosling uses numbers to ‘tell the story of the world’ in four minutes. Using statistical data, he plots life expectancy in relation to income for every country since the year 1810 and demonstrates that what we expect isn’t always what we get. Rosling's holographic infographics get us to see that the joy of stats is in revealing what we might not otherwise see.
