Research and data are crucial to making progress against the large problems the world is facing and to build a better future. At Our World in Data, we make research and data on the world’s largest problems accessible and understandable.
The problems the world faces are very diverse – global poverty, CO₂ emissions, child mortality, mental health, and many more. Our World in Data readers who are concerned about these problems rely on our compilation of research, data, and our visualizations to understand these problems clearly, and learn how it is possible to make progress against them.
All data on Our World in Data is available for download, all visualisations are Creative Commons licensed, and all tools are open source.
