Title: The Statistics of Poverty and Inequality
Url: https://ww2.amstat.org/publications/jse/v3n2/datasets.rouncefield.html
Creator: Rouncefield, Mary
Publisher: Chester College
Description: This dataset, created by Mary Rouncefield of Chester College, contains a number of variables like birth rate, death rate, life expectancy, and Gross National Product (GNP) for 97 countries. Suggested activities are geared toward non-mathematicians and include exploratory graphical analyzes to answer several central questions. Some of these activities include an investigation into the wealth and life expectancies of different countries and their population growth rates. The author states that this activity will allow students to "generate their own questions and find possible solutions."
