Reading a post by Ethan Zuckerman I’ve found a terrific tool I hadn’t heard of.
The Human Development Report search tools let you build your own table by chosing the countries, data, etc. you want, crossing them they way you want and exporting them in CSV files or other spreadsheet formats. Impressive, really impressive. I wonder if I’ll ever overcome my deepest ignorance :P
Some highlights/bookmarks of the information there:
- Human Development Reports, the Human Development Report Office web site
- All data from the Human Development Report
- Searchable data and customized searches – and output!
- Other data sources from different UN agencies
This finding will be very useful :) :) :)
