Human Progress - in datacards
Pinker's "Enlightenment now" is the tale of how the human condition has improved throughout the decades. By virtue of the ideas of the Enlightenment, we as a species have undergone an unstoppable process of improvement of our condition, from life expectancy and health to rising democratisation and prosperity. Much is still to be done, but it's undeniable that (despite what pessimists may say) we live in the best era that ever existed. Pinker explores this theme in detail, describing results with data. Here I reproduce some of the findings by using the same data. On top of the book's narrative, I also created cards from other sources, still on the same theme.
Life expectancy at birth. globally, from Pinker's book. Data originally from Our World in Data, that I read through via the book. We shifted from 30 years to the more than 70 today.
A F. Nightingale diagram (possibly not the best choice for this viz) - data from Our World in Data. Number of countries, amongst those which report data for all years, classed as autocratic and democratic in time. Numbers are the areas from the center.
Global GDP in time - data from Our World in Data via Pinker's book. It's a tale of growing prosperity.
Nuclear warheads in time since 1945, USA, Russia (includes USSR) and the world as a whole. The number has decreased sensibly and despite not being null yet, it hints at a more peaceful world. Data: FAS nuclear notebook via Our World in Data (I read about it in Pinker's book).
