In this exercise, we will be looking at the life expectancy and expected years of schooling on a per country per year basis starting from 1990 onward. Not all data is available for all countries, due to various geopolitical and other reasons that have made it difficult to obtain data for respective years.

The datasets for the HDP program have been obtained from http://hdr.undp.org/en/data.

In the exercises, the data has been cleaned and formatted to make it easier for the reader to analyse the information, especially given it is the first chapter of the book. Download the data from the Packt code repository for this book. Following are the steps to complete the exercise:
