Join Bill Shander for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with the data: inequality data, part of Designing a Data Visualization.
- So here we are, and we have our inequality worksheet,…and I can tell you before we start,…this one's the easiest one.…So first of all we start off by doing…a lot of the same things we did…for the last couple of movies,…okay I'm gonna delete extraneous columns…and rows that I don't need.…For instance, I'm only using these four columns,…the 2013 HDI,…the Inequality-adjusted HDI value for 2013,…the percentage loss, right,…how many percentage points it dropped…based on iequality in this year,…and also, what it did to its rank,…so for instance, you'll notice here,…the United States has a lot of inequality…compared to the other countries…that have high human development,…it drops by 23 rank positions,…even though its percentage loss isn't…quite as big a number as some of the poorer countries.…
So, these are the four numbers we're actually gonna use,…I'm gonna get rid of everything else.…So I'm just gonna click and drag…across all the way out over here,…right-click, and delete,…I'm gonna get rid of these spacer columns, once again,…
The UN Human Development Index used in this course is a perfect example: a composite number used to rank countries on how well they're doing across a range of measures (such as health, wealth, and education). Instructor Bill Shander shows how to make this index data tangible and approachable by imagining the story and visual approach first. He then builds the design in Adobe Illustrator, capitalizing on some automation and scripting abilities the program offers. Start watching for unique insights into the entire data visualization process.
