A data frame containing country names as used by GapMinder and the
package to facilitate converstion between the two.
A data frame with 258 observations on the following variables.
worldmap region name http://mappinghacks.com/ data sets
gapminder country name in GapMinder data sets
maps region name in
maps data sets
The "countries" in the
maps data include several other geographic regions (bodies
of water, islands belonging to other countries, Hawaii, etc.) that are not countries.
maps countries do not include many of the countries that
have been created since ca. 2000. The mapping is therefore many-to-many, and also
includes some NAs when there is no appropriate mapping. Bodies of water in the
maps data, for example, are not assigned a country in the GapMinder.
subset(Countries, maps=="Yugoslavia") # Where has Yugoslavia gone?
subset(Countries, is.na(gapminder)) # Things from maps with no GapMinder equivalent
subset(Countries, is.na(maps)) # Things from GapMinder with no maps equivalent
