Hello dear vis.social group. I’m a policy researcher for the Grattan Institue in Australia. Always looking for better ways to visualise our data. Keen to hear from you all.

Surely best to round the labels but not the underlying data? The misaligned top is doing my head in. (Or am I missing something?)
From the usually fantastic fivethirtyeight.

@RFon I found this to be a beautiful walk-through of 1) a concept that would be _far_ more complex without vis assistance, and 2) a topic I was -- until now! -- entirely unfamiliar with.

Really good stuff. Did you have a hand in producing it?


@vinodxyz your impressive piece of work will certainly make the list this time around!


Putting together a somewhat-regular datavis newsletter for my public policy office.

The goal is to encourage better story-telling with data, and I couldn’t think of a better group to ask: what are your favourite examples of data visualisation to convey a story?

Would love to hear from you all (self entries encouraged)

Woah, @gka is here! A lifelong favourite of mine!

The (wonderful!) “introduction to machine learning” site by r2d3 had a similar style.

The NYT piece “The Follower Factory” is a wonderful example of introducing a reader (viewer? consumer?) to a somewhat conceptually complex vis. Building up a scatter dot-by-dot while telling the story. nytimes.com/interactive/2018/0

Has anyone here used this style before? Would love to see further examples.
