Our Audience & Coverage


Over the last year we had 100 million visitors (as of March 2021), and we are very happy about the fact that readers come from every country in the world.

Our visitors range from students and school children doing their classwork; to individuals trying to better understand the world and how it’s changing; to journalists, researchers, and policymakers looking for the data and research to inform their work.

In the section on Teaching we discuss how many teachers, lecturers, and professors use Our World in Data material in their classrooms.


Our work is cited and referenced in many hundreds of articles, reports, books, lectures, videos, radio shows, podcasts, and talks every year.

In the section below is a partial list of such citations — the ones that have come to our attention. Since all our work is open, it is difficult to keep track of our citations.

If you would like to suggest an addition to our list of citations, send us an email at info@ourworldindata.org.

Many teachers, lecturers, and professors use Our World in Data material in their teaching. The list of institutions where our work is being used for teaching is long and varied. The spectrum spans primary and secondary schools through to higher education institutions across the world, including the University of Oxford, Stanford University, the University of Chicago, The University of Cambridge, the University of California Berkeley, and many more institutions in Europe, Oceania, Asia, Africa, and the Americas.

One of the most inspiring and innovative teachers we heard from was Matthew Cone, a high-school teacher at Carrboro High School in North Carolina. He wrote a post on our site about how he uses our work in his teaching.

As a response to this use of our work we built the Our World in Data-Teaching Hub.

We conducted a public survey to understand how people use our work in teaching.  Below is a chart summarizing what we learned from this exercise covering nearly 100 educators from around the world.1

Three findings from our survey stood out to us:

  • Teachers and professors use our work in many different ways. Taking charts for in-class presentations is a very common use of our work, but many teachers also use our work to enhance their reading list, set homework exercises or to prepare classes.
  • Our work is used by students with a wide range of background knowledge. We knew that our work is used in postgraduate teaching, but were indeed positively surprised to see that primary and secondary-school teachers use our work with their students as well.
  • Teachers often rely on material across multiple topics. Many teachers combine material from poverty, inequality, demography, health, education, or the environment.

If you know of people using Our World in Data not listed here, please let us know and we will add it to this page!
