Dr. Gene Chase guest author again.

The video at Joy of Stats shows 200 countries’ health and wealth over 200 years. The augmented reality (AR) presentation makes it interesting even if you’re not a geek like me.

My favorite part of Statistics isn’t numerical. It’s graphical. Visual data analysis is powerful because our eyes coupled with our minds are able to see patterns that no amount of means, modes, medians, and standard deviations can show.
