World Economic Activity


  1. Wow. How very cool. They even make the economic data they used available …

  2. Yeah, this is a wide open set of data with which to have a lot of fun. 🙂

  3. I don’t know what data they used but I find it hard to believe that western Kenya and Rift Valley produces more economic activity than Mombasa. For crying out loud, Mombasa has an oil refinery, habor, tourist attractions among other large industries.

  4. very interesting data analysis. quit easy &cover all point in one . it shows lots of fun &enjoyment
