The best of last week’s big and small data visualizations
Happy new year, and welcome back to the 75th edition of Data Vis Dispatch! Every week, we’ll be publishing a collection of the best small and large data visualizations we find, especially from news organizations — to celebrate data journalism, data visualization, simple charts, elaborate maps, and their creators.
Recurring topics this week include data vis highlights of 2022, flight cancellations, and the economy.
The turn of 2022 and 2023 has been a quiet one in the data vis world. Still, a few themes stood out. More newsrooms have shared their data-driven highlights of the year.
The United States saw mass cancellations of flights during the winter holidays.
Americans face an uncertain economic outlook, from higher borrowing costs to falling stocks.
In Spain, journalists explored public spending and what languages people speak.
Other notable charts covered millennial voters, an NBA record in the U.S., quarantine policies in China, the changing climate and height of train platforms in Germany, and champagne sales in Brazil.
