Cheers Britain

#MakeoverMonday - Week 21

This week we reviewed an article published by the BBC, "Are Britons falling out of love with booze?". The article reveals, a decline in the number of alcoholic beverages consumed; this is most prevalent in young people (age 16 to 24). Inspired by charts seen in The Economist, I chose to display the data with a horizontally stacked bar charts. Using Tableau to create my horizontal stacked bar charts, I then applied a "Percentage of Total" (Table Calculation), computed using the number of drinks each participant had had the week prior to the polling. By adding the table calculation it enabled the bar to fill to 100%, representing the entire sample population.

We evaluated the top 500 YouTube gaming channels to determent have to make a top gaming channel. Our data came from SocialBlade, a site that monitors the impact a YouTube channel has on it viewer and grades the channel from A+ to -D. I choose to display the data in a Top 10 list with links to the corresponding YouTube channel. I also used a barbell chart to display the difference in the grades given by SocialBlade. Finally, I showed all 500 Youtube channels on a scatterplot that can be filled by grade using the icon bar.

#MakeoverMonday - Week 9

Andy shared his spending habits of his American Express card over the past year. I chose to show the flow of his spending habits from the country to the product purchased. Using Tableau to create a Sankey diagram in order to visualize the flow of Andy's purchases. Sankey diagrams are a specific type of flow diagram that puts visual emphasis on the major flows within a system. You may have seen Sankey diagrams in Google Analytics to visually represent the bounce rate and flow of visitors within a site.
