NationMaster was founded by Luke Metcalfe back in 2003. He was a fan of the CIA World Factbook but wanted to give it context, comparing countries side by side and calculating everything per capita. From there, NationMaster turned into the internet’s one stop shop for international statistics – a place where you can compare anything at all.
Now in 2014, NationMaster is growing into a community of statistics creators and users.Nation Master
