Statistics are now Easier to find with Google Private Data
Posted on:  Nov 17, 2009

Innovations never take a back seat at Google! Google brainies have integrated new Private Data feature to its search result. World Bank has released an API for its data and Google was quick to integrate it into their search result and make statistics easier to find!

With the Public Data feature, next time you search Google for updates on topics like GDP of India, Life Expectancy in Brazil or Energy use of China, etc., you would see an interactive graphical chart along with its own search result. Click on the chart and you would be able to compare one country’s data with other regions around the world. See the demo:

You put your query in the search box- CO2 emissions per capita, and it would open a graph chart for visual analysis.


 

You can then compare the search with other countries. Check the country box on the left, and it would show the comparative result based on your selection. For instance, you choose United States, Australia, Canada, Germany, Poland, China and Mauritius, and it would display the graphical result including the added regions. See the image below:

Users can get the Public Data result for any of the 17 World Bank Indicators namely:

1. CO2 emissions per capita
2. Electricity consumption per capita
3. Energy use per capita
4. Exports as percentage of GDP
5. Fertility rate
6. GDP deflator change
7. GDP growth rate
8. GNI per capita in PPP dollars
9. Gross Domestic Product
10. Gross National Income in PPP dollars
11. Imports as percentage of GDP
12. Internet users as percentage of population
13. Life expectancy
14. Military expenditure as percentage of GDP
15. Mortality rate under 5
16. Population
17. Population growth rate

You can phrase your query in any form like “Life Expectancy”, “Life Expectancy Rate” and “What is the Life Expectancy Rate?” So Google has made it again! This feature would help the data publishers to have a quick and easy view on the data. Does that ring a bell for competitor Bing?

well.. hats off to Google brains.. They always do the things that no one even thinks of.. Google Private Data is quiet useful for the organisations as well as individuals.. They are not only giving a slick access to the public data of World Bank but alongside they are increasing the awareness among people. So, all in all, Google rocks..

that`s really nice to get access to all such data. I think it`ll be very helpful to school and college student who are making projects and presentations every now and then.

Firstly I would like to congratulate the blogger for compiling the article in such a professional manner. Secondly Yes I agree with Ankit, Google has always been the driving force for many Innovations. As innovation has nothing to do with R& D Dollars one have , Because when Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R & D. It’s not about money. It’s about the people you have, how you’re led, and how much you get it.

Yes Indeed, these stuffs will be of great help to students engulfed in making related projects. However, Google needs to publicize these innovations more to common people apart from statisticians. With such innovations, Google is really trying to keep any kind of data just a click away. So no wonder, most technicians feel Google will soon overshadow many IT departments.

@Nupur Kingder:yes I agree with your second half of your statement . But I would like to draw your attention that Google has a culture of not to advertise their product publicly, and till now they haven’t spent a single penny on advertisement (advisement like recent YAHOO campaigns that you can easily find at any mode of IT& B) because it has always relied on mouth to mouth advertisement, this is what Larry Page (one of founder of Google Inc.) stated in an interview on Discovery

Hi Varun, thanks for taking out time and commenting. I would like to agree with you on Larry Page`s views, but also want to reiterate that Google does promotes its products. All its products starting from Google Docs, Chrome and Adowrds, all have ben promoted on search engines and SM sites.
