Couple of weeks ago, I was looking for interesting data sets to play with using R. I came across this post and got inspired to use World Bank data to extract interesting patterns/facts about developing countries. World Bank has 300+ World Development indicators on 200+ countries from 1960 to 2008.

I plotted BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China) nations against USA.  Here are some plots on a few topics...

Economic Policy and External Debt



Education



Environment



Financial Sector



Health



Infrastructure



Labor



Private Sector



Public Sector



Science and Technology



Social Development



Urban Improvement
