This is an introduction to Our World in Data (OWID) – an online web publication that shows how global living conditions are changing. The aim is to give a global overview and to show changes over the very long run, so that we can see where we are coming from and where we are today. OWID entries give the reader an overview of how a particular social, economic or ecological aspect of the world has changed over the long run. These entries are arranged into the 16 categories that you find in the menu on the very top of the page.
