Welcome to Wonderful Wednesdays

Get involved and develop your data visualisation knowledge & skills.

Here's how it works:

  • Each month a new challenge will be provided, including access to the relevant dataset.
  • Download the data, and develop your own data visualisations.
  • Develop your graphics and code (using any programming language or tool) and submit your entry.
  • Attend the monthly webinar, to hear your submission discussed by our expert panel. Alternatively, please feel free to simply attend the webinars, view the submitted graphics and listen to the panel discussion.

Current Example: Multidimensional Quality of life

The challenge for the next webinar is to find ways to visualize the treatment effect of the DLQI possibly reflecting the multidimensional nature of this quality of life index, that is very specific to dermatological illnesses. Putting a lot of information in a graphical display must be weighed against highlighting to important results. We’re looking forward seeing your ideas.

The study design is relatively simple with two treatment arms and only two measurements, i.e. only one post-baseline value of the DLQI and its ten subscores. At baseline the PASI was measured in addition.
