Google’s Public Data Explorer

Google’s Public Data

Google’s Public Data Explorer provides users with a free, easy to use means of accessing, exploring, and visualizing large datasets and public databases. Now, thanks to collaboration between the Pardee Center and Google, you can use the Google Public Data site to explore a wide range of forecasts from IFs, including: an updated global forecast replicating Hans Rosling's famous cross-sectional plot of fertility and GDP; global energy demand for UNEP GEO 4 scenarios; relative material power for the United States, China, and India; a map displaying the distribution of malnourished children; and the percentage of people by region with household connections to safe water.

For one example of how Google Public Data Explorer can be used, please see the following visualization of Population (percent total) 65+ and Power Index compared by country.
