For Datawrapper's Weekly Chart series, I retell the strange story of the German census of 2011, when 1.5 million people disappeared (or never existed? we don't know) 🤷♂️ https://blog.datawrapper.de/weekly-chart-census-gap/
Public service announcement: Next Monday, I’ll be at the Berlin Open Knowledge Lab to give an introduction to German regional statistics and the Datenguide open source project. See y’all there? https://www.meetup.com/OK-Lab-Berlin/events/cnrqbqybcfbmb/
To learn more about the data analysis, and about how I made these charts, read my post on the Datawrapper blog. https://blog.datawrapper.de/best-hip-hop-songs-of-all-time-visualized/
To celebrate female voices in hip-hop, I used the BBC Music poll data to create an alternative best-of: The best hip-hop songs of all time, but featuring women. It’s also on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/7oJVkoKAbErjIRvKiu0tV6?si=XFt_VphPQeKTyo8c38kYfQ
On the whole list of 311 songs named by more than 100 critics, there are only 23 songs by individual women rappers or all-female bands. For comparison: Even though JAY-Z did not make it into the top 25, he alone has 20 songs on the list.
Very few women made it onto the best-of list. The top 25 has only two songs by female MC’s (Queen Latifah and Lauryn Hill). That's less than it has songs featuring OutKast.
The golden era was big: Most high-ranking songs are from the mid-80s to mid-90s. Little surprise here, I guess. In the top 25, there are only two songs from past decade (by Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar).
🎤 Earlier this year, BBC Music published a list of the best hip-hop songs of all time. For Datawrapper’s weekly chart series I took a closer look at the data behind it. Here are a couple of things I learned. https://blog.datawrapper.de/best-hip-hop-songs-of-all-time-visualized/

People talk a lot about limiting global warming to 2 ºC. But what happens if we don't? In this pretty drastic chart, my colleague @gka explains what different stages of the ongoing climate crisis could look like (it's bad) 🔥 https://blog.datawrapper.de/climate-crisis-global-warming/
