The best of last week’s big and small data visualizations
Welcome back to the 85th 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 International Women’s Day, the collapse of a bank, and the Oscars.
It’s almost the middle of March, and spring is beginning to show up in the Northern hemisphere, in some places much earlier than usual.
Last Wednesday, March 8, the world celebrated International Women’s Day, an opportunity to highlight women’s stories, both positive and negative.
And a few days later, on Friday last week, the Silicon Valley Bank collapse became the second-largest bank failure in the history of the United States.
On Sunday, March 12, the 2023 Oscar winners were announced in what’s become one of the most-watched award ceremonies in the film industry.
The following data visualizations all look at the lives of young people — mental health issues in the UK and the US, bullying in South Korea, and a growing interest in psychology courses in Brazil.
Meanwhile, Russia and China are protecting their strategic positions in the Arctic and the South China Sea.
Other notable data vis of the week covers inflation, EV chargers, and the competition among basketball mascots.
