The Joy of Stats


Most of us can’t resist a story.

I have never been able to sit through statistics without my mind going numb, but I was glued to this.

Hans Rosling says “Having the data is not enough. I have to show it in ways people both enjoy and understand.” Probably why he calls this the “Joy of Stats” and why I have never been so fascinated with numbers as while watching his presentation. He uses data and the visual representation of it to tell a story.
