See how the rest of the world lives, organized by income

What does it look like when someone in Sweden brushes their teeth or when someone in Rwanda makes their bed? Anna Rosling Rönnlund wants all of us to find out, so she sent photographers to 264 homes in 50 countries (and counting!) to document the stoves, bed, toilets, toys and more in households from every income bracket around the world. See how families live in Latvia or Burkina Faso or Peru as Rosling Rönnlund explains the power of data visualization to help us better understand the world.

Anna Rosling Rönnlund's personal mission: to make it easy for anyone to understand the world visually.

Always with the end consumer at heart, Anna Rosling Rönnlund spends her days making sure that Gapminder -- a foundation she co-founded with Hans and Ola Rosling to promote a fact-based Worldview that everyone can understand -- provides the world with useful and meaningful data about the world. Passionate about the visual side of data, she invented the project Dollar Street, where she uses photos as data to show how people really live on different income levels, beyond country stereotypes. Dollar Street explores a lot of items in homes like, for instance, how people brush their teeth.
