Dynamic Display, Modeling, and Data Visualization

This is one of the most powerful examples I have seen in showing the value of how technology can allow us to look at data in new and exciting ways. Through innovative ways of data visualization we are able to see relationships, trends, rates, and make predictions in ways that were very difficult to make in the past or required specific statistical expertise. Take a few minutes to view this recent video from CNN and the dynamic data driven explanation of the United States standard of living relative to other countries in the world. Fascinating. -Dr. Petrosino
