😷💖 After a year-long hiatus due to COVID-19, Hacks/Hackers Berlin is finally back with its first online edition! This time we'll discuss how the pandemic has changed our work — and us. I hope to see you all there! meetup.com/Hacks-Hackers-Berli

While y'all were stress-refreshing election result pages, I put almost 5 decades of presidential races in a different kind of election map. What patterns can you see in this chart? blog.datawrapper.de/weekly-cha

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) 🤷‍♂️ blog.datawrapper.de/weekly-cha

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? meetup.com/OK-Lab-Berlin/event

To learn more about the data analysis, and about how I made these charts, read my post on the Datawrapper blog. blog.datawrapper.de/best-hip-h

Show thread

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: open.spotify.com/playlist/7oJV

Show thread

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.

Show thread

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.

Show thread

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).

Show thread

🎤 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. blog.datawrapper.de/best-hip-h
