PBS Off Book’s recent episode is on “the art of data visualization.” It feels like a TED talk — kind of fluffy and warm — with several names and visualization examples that you’ll recognize. No clue who the first guy is though.
The Art of Data Visualization
Causes of Death
There are many ways to die. Cancer. Infection. Mental. External. This is how different groups of people died over the past 10 years, visualized by age.
Life expectancy changes
The data goes back to 1960 and up to the most current estimates for 2009. Each line represents a country.
Divorce and Occupation
Some jobs tend towards higher divorce rates. Some towards lower. Salary also probably plays a role.
