Description

Excerpt of the Gapminder data on life expectancy, GDP per capita, and population by country.

Usage

1

Format

The main data frame gapminder has 1704 rows and 6 variables:

country

factor with 142 levels

continent

factor with 5 levels

year

ranges from 1952 to 2007 in increments of 5 years

lifeExp

life expectancy at birth, in years

pop

population

gdpPercap

GDP per capita (US$, inflation-adjusted)

The supplemental data frame gapminder_unfiltered was not filtered on year or for complete data and has 3313 rows.
