Worldmapper: Work

For the right kind of person, this site could suck hours and hours of time out of the day. I'm one of those. It's pretty simple -- you choose the measures (work, health, education, poverty, etc) you're interested in and then get to see maps of the world with the relative weight for those measures represented. Hundreds of them.

Thanks to elearnspace for the pointer...

Thanks for sharing this useful site. As someone trained in epidemiology, I love this sort of perspective on the world.

No problem, Linda. Thanks for the note. I also love these kinds of tools that let you go deeper and deeper into something you care about, but also lets you discover new things you weren't initially seeking.
