    Changed reply in topic of Hi, Why is there no data or photographs from Australasia? Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands? by Fernanda Drumond to Thank you very much for your question. We’re glad you liked Dollar Street!&nbsp;<br /><br />You’re right, we don’t have pictures from homes in New Zealand, Australia, Pacific Islands yet. We would love to add homes from those regions. Dollar Street is an educational tool built by Gapminder, a small non-profit foundation. We haven’t had resources yet to send photographers to all nations, to cover all income levels, but we do dream of doing that! If you can help us in getting homes from this region, that would be great! Here is the Dollar Street guide explaining how to take pictures and videos for Dollar Street: <a href="http://gapm.io/ds_photoguide" rel="nofollow">gapm.io/ds_photoguide</a>&nbsp;<br />Or if you know photographer or family willing to join, please let us know. You can get in touch with me via my email: <a href="mailto:fernanda@gapminder.org" rel="nofollow">fernanda@gapminder.org</a><br /><br />Thanks and kind regards,<br />Fernanda Drumond.

    Changed description of The potential effects of climate change is well known amongst the public (this has been proven through many studies), but I have not seen one addressing the common misconception concerning the cost (not necessarily money) of reversing the development. I have found most to assume that programs for reducing carbon exhaust (ex) comes with large costs. Would you please make a survey investingating this. If my hypothesis would be correct I believe this would confirm a catastrophic problem in tackling climate change! by Mattias Akke to The potential effects of climate change is well known amongst the public (this has been proven through many studies), but I have not seen one addressing the common misconception concerning the cost (not necessarily money) of reversing the development. I have found most to assume that programs for reducing carbon exhaust (ex) comes with large costs. This is not at all the case! And yet many proposals to help te climate are discarded, EVEN IF IT WOULD RESULT IN SAVED MONEY! Would you please make a survey investingating this. If my hypothesis would be correct I believe this would confirm a catastrophic problem in tackling climate change!.

    Changed reply in topic of Quiz answers -Breakdown by country where applicable by Fernanda Drumond to Hi Ranjit,<br /><br /><br />Oh now I get it! I’m sorry for the confusion from my part! You said you wanted the answers, and I all the time understood that you were asking for the results! Sorry, my bad.<br /><br />You’re right, it would be good to add that in our website! Some of the data you’re asking for we have on the Gapminder Tools. By clicking the labels on the axes you can change what indicator is shown.<br /><br /><br />Question 1:<br />Here is, for example, girls primary school completion (Question 1) vs GDP per cap:<br /><a href="https://www.gapminder.org/tools/#$state$time$value=2015;&amp;marker$axis_y$which=primary_school_completion_percent_of_girls&amp;domainMin:null&amp;domainMax:null&amp;zoomedMin:null&amp;zoomedMax:null&amp;spaceRef:null;;;&amp;chart-type=bubbles" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwgapminderorg/tools/statetimevalue2015markeraxis_ywhichprimary_school_completion_percent_of_girlsdomainMinnulldomainMaxnullzoomedMinnullzoomedMaxnullspaceRefnullchart-typebubbles">https://www.gapminder.org/tools/#$state$time$value=2015;&amp;marker$axis_y$which=primary_school_comp...</a><br /><br />Question 2:<br />Where the majority of the world population lives. I would say, look on Gapminder Bubbles in which level most people live, i.e. the biggest "bubble surface" (=2 and 3). There you can see also in which level each country is.<br /><br />Question 3:<br />You can see our income mountain, that shows the amount of people in each income level, along with the poverty line. You can see tons of people move away from extreme poverty the decades went by. And you can also select by country: <a href="https://www.gapminder.org/tools/#$chart-type=mountain" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">https://www.gapminder.org/tools/#$chart-type=mountain</a><br /><br />Question 4<br />You can see the life expectancy of each country vs. GPD per capita as default in the Bubbles: <a href="https://www.gapminder.org/tools/#$chart-type=bubbles" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">https://www.gapminder.org/tools/#$chart-type=bubbles</a><br /><br />Question 5:&nbsp;<br />In our Ages tool,&nbsp;you can see population by age in blocks of 15 years until 2100 per country, e.g. <a href="https://www.gapminder.org/tools/#$state$time$value=2100&amp;step:15;&amp;entities$show$geo$/$in@=dza&amp;=jpn&amp;=ken;;;;&amp;entities_age$grouping:15;;&amp;chart-type=popbyage" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwgapminderorg/tools/statetimevalue2100step15entitiesshowgeo/indzajpnkenentities_agegrouping15chart-typepopbyage">https://www.gapminder.org/tools/#$state$time$value=2100&amp;step:15;&amp;entities$show$geo$/$in@=dza...</a><br /><br />Question 6:&nbsp;<br />The main reason why the world pop will grow to 11 billion people by the end of the century is because there will be more adults. You can see that both in the tool Ages (<a href="https://www.gapminder.org/tools/#$state$time$value=2018;;&amp;chart-type=popbyage" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwgapminderorg/tools/statetimevalue2018chart-typepopbyage">https://www.gapminder.org/tools/#$state$time$value=2018;;&amp;chart-type=popbyage</a>) and in this video: <a href="https://www.gapminder.org/answers/what-makes-the-world-population-continue-to-grow/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwgapminderorg/answers/what-makes-the-world-population-continue-to-grow/">https://www.gapminder.org/answers/what-makes-the-world-population-continue-to-grow/</a><br />You can also see the age pyramid for each country<br /><br />Question 7:<br />Deaths due to natural disaster. We have, for example, data on drought deaths, or on earthquake deaths, or flood deaths, etc. You need to type 'death' in the search field, then you will see the options. See for example:&nbsp;<a href="https://www.gapminder.org/tools/#$state$time$value=2008;&amp;marker$axis_y$which=earthquake_deaths_annual_number&amp;domainMin:null&amp;domainMax:null&amp;zoomedMin:null&amp;zoomedMax:null&amp;spaceRef:null;;;&amp;chart-type=bubbles" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwgapminderorg/tools/statetimevalue2008markeraxis_ywhichearthquake_deaths_annual_numberdomainMinnulldomainMaxnullzoomedMinnullzoomedMaxnullspaceRefnullchart-typebubbles">https://www.gapminder.org/tools/#$state$time$value=2008;&amp;marker$axis_y$which=earthquake_deaths_a...</a><br /><br />Question 8:<br />Where do the 7 billion people live? This map (<a href="https://www.gapminder.org/tools/#$chart-type=map" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwgapminderorg/tools/chart-typemap">https://www.gapminder.org/tools/#$chart-type=map</a>) helps you to visualize the population of each country.<br /><br />Question 9:<br />How many children are vaccinated. This one is more difficult to show per country, because in our tools we have the indicators separated by types of vaccines. We used to use measles as proxy for vaccines, so you can see that here: <a href="https://www.gapminder.org/tools/#$state$time$value=2011;&amp;marker$axis_y$data=data_wdi&amp;which=sh_imm_meas&amp;domainMin:null&amp;domainMax:null&amp;zoomedMin:null&amp;zoomedMax:null&amp;spaceRef:null;;;&amp;chart-type=bubbles" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwgapminderorg/tools/statetimevalue2011markeraxis_ydatadata_wdiwhichsh_imm_measdomainMinnulldomainMaxnullzoomedMinnullzoomedMaxnullspaceRefnullchart-typebubbles">https://www.gapminder.org/tools/#$state$time$value=2011;&amp;marker$axis_y$data=data_wdi&amp;which=s...</a><br /><br />Question 10:<br />How many years have women spent in school? You can see the gender ration of means years in school vs. GDP per capita here: <a href="https://www.gapminder.org/tools/#$state$time$value=2015;&amp;marker$axis_y$which=mean_years_in_school_women_percent_men_25_to_34_years&amp;domainMin:null&amp;domainMax:null&amp;zoomedMin:null&amp;zoomedMax:null&amp;spaceRef:null;;;&amp;chart-type=bubbles" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">https://www.gapminder.org/tools/#$state$time$value=2015;&amp;marker$axis_y$which=mean_years_in_schoo...</a><br /><br />Question 11:<br />Tigers, Giant Pandas and Black Rhinos. We don’t have that in our tools yet. Let’s see what disagreed data is available to see if it’s possible to add it somehow in our website.<br /><br />Question 12:<br />Access to electricity. You can see electricity use per person vs. GDP per capita here: <a href="https://www.gapminder.org/tools/#$state$time$value=2011;&amp;marker$axis_y$which=electricity_use_per_person&amp;domainMin:null&amp;domainMax:null&amp;zoomedMin:null&amp;zoomedMax:null&amp;spaceRef:null;;;&amp;chart-type=bubbles" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">https://www.gapminder.org/tools/#$state$time$value=2011;&amp;marker$axis_y$which=electricity_use_per...</a><br /><br />Question 13:<br />Average temperature of the Earth will get warmer. We don’t have data in our tools yet. Might be difficult to find desegregated data for this, but we could try :)<br /><br /><br />You’re right, a page in our website with these tools embed would be interesting. We are working on one page for each of the questions, and now we can see how to add this also.<br /><br /><br />Thanks for your suggestion and for insisting in making me understand it :p<br /><br /><br />Kind regards,<br />Fernanda.
