Demographic data display is a highly recurrent issue. Rhys Warham presents proposals how a comprehensive graphical display of demographic data could look like. Visualisations are available on the Wonderful Wednesday blog

Demographic data often consists of multiple characteristics with different data types. How to effectively combine these? One way to even include individual values is using beeswarm plots. Using scatterplots also gives the possibility to use color to display categorical data. It is advisable to use colorblind proof  palette. A universal tool for a quick and easy look at the data is Describer. Another tool presents plots and explaining text side by side. And for a comprehensive overview facet boxplots are a tool that works without a lot of explanation. Enjoy looking!

There’s no challenge for January. Instead the first webinar in 2022 will give a step by step guidance how to improve a given graph making use of gestalt principles. See the Wonderful Wednesday homepage for more detail.
