Have you ever asked yourself when is the average age in your country to have a first child? Seems to me that most women in europe first prefer to get some sort of financial stability and climb the career ladder before they dedicate themselves to having children. Women are delaying to have a first child until they are about 30 years old. I found this data set on average age of women at having first child by country very interesting. Click on the chart for more details.

Here is a complete dataset:

This post is probably more interesting for my Russian readers. As many of you might know, Vladimir Putin had not participated in a single debate with his opponents for the post of the President of the Russian Federation. He, instead, has written a set of articles about my country, that are published on his the official site. I used the tag cloud software Wordle to run the full texts of his articles to analyse the most frequent words.

"Democracy and the quality of the government"

"Russia and Changing world"

"Economic Tasks"

"Russia muscles up – the challenges we must rise to face"

"Russia: The ethnicity issue"
