I have just discovered yet another public data site Most of the data are time-series. It collects together things like World bank, Eurostat, Gapminder into the one place. It also allows you to download data as csv files or to create a graph and link for embeddign into a web-page– as below.



occasionally it doesn’t quite come out right but it’s a nice tool to try…
