The current version of Trendalyzer is available since March 2006 as Gapminder World, a web-service displaying time series of development statistics for all countries.

IIASA. 2002

A major task of the ERD project is to analyze trends and driving forces of rural development from a Europe-wide perspective. It is therefore essential to build-up a database of homogenized indicators for the countries included that cover all major dimensions of rural development. These indicators should be available at a low regional level (at least NUTS 3).

G. K. Heiling
CL&F RESEARCH, 2006

This electronic publication is analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of China, Europe and the United States of America in ten dimensions - from the human resources to the economy and from the technological capacity to the state of the natural environment (see the menu items on the left). Of course, in each dimension several issues will be studied in detail (since this work is still ongoing, the sub-chapters are tentative). For more than 3 years I have been collecting and analyzing statistical data, research reports and other publications that will hopefully allow a balanced comparison of the three major players on the global stage.
