The OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) has released a new fun way to view the statistics from the OECD Factbook (if you are on campus check out this link for both print and electronic versions). This web site, using Gapminder graphs, lets you compare the interactions of three different statistics.
For example, why not compare the total production of energy, production of crude oil and crude oil prices (here's the chart)? You can also get the data by clicking on the little tiny symbol (kinda looks like an excel box) on the right next to size.
Want more statistical data (and who wouldn't)? Check out the library's guides.
