As Michael Blastland of BBC News Magazine describes it, this is statistical eye candy. The OECD Factbook eXplorer is a tool for visualizing OECD data, allowing users to examine statistical patterns across time and space. The site makes it easy to generate animated scatterplots and static graphs by selecting geographic regions, time periods, and demographic and economic indicators.

Blastland’s video report further illustrates the tool’s capabilities.

Thanks to Rex Brynen for alerting me to this resource.
