Students and statistics hounds now have even more reason to love Google.  Today, the search giant announced that it’s made information related to 17 World Development Indicators available through standard search results pages.

The stats come courtesy of the World Bank, and a post on the Official Google Blog explained, "Search should be intuitive, so we’ve done the work to think through queries where public data will be most relevant to you.  To see the new data, try queries like [gdp of indonesia], [children per woman in brazil], [rwanda's population growth], [energy use of iceland], [co2 emissions of iceland] and [gdp growth rate argentina]."

At that point, you’ll get something like the screenshot below:

Then, if you click on the graph, Google will take you to an interactive page where you can put together a more informative diagram.

Have fun finding out a little bit more about our world.  And here’s one last dollop of info so that you don’t waste a bunch of time: the available World Development Indicators are CO2 emissions per capita, Electricity consumption per capita, Energy use per capita, Exports as percentage of GDP, Fertility rate, GDP deflator change, GDP growth rate, GNI per capita in PPP dollars, Gross Domestic Product, Gross National Income in PPP dollars, Imports as percentage of GDP, Internet users as percentage of population, Life expectancy, Military expenditure as percentage of GDP, Mortality rate (under 5), Population, and Population growth rate.
