In my mind there is no bigger issue right now than that of climate change. Because it affects all of us. All 7 billion people.
For this week Andy chose a dataset about bear attacks that ended fatally. My makeover focused on creating a very simple bar chart.
After a few weeks of more in-depth datasets I decided to use a dataset that was shorter and simpler, with the option for people to add more context should they wish to do so.
For week 19 Andy picked baseball data and I’ll be the first to admit that I expected it to not be fun, because it’s a topic I know nothing about and I wasn’t quite ready to spend hours learning about baseball. Until I did.
When I came across a dataset about spacewalks at the International Space Station, I knew I had to use it for Makeover Monday, especially because there were so many awesome vizzes from a previous NASA dataset about solar eclipses.
Andy found a great dataset for this week’s challenge: rankings of stadium popcorn at NBA stadiums across the US.

For this week’s makeover, we’re collaborating with RJ Andrews on his recent book ‘Info We Trust’. RJ gave me a fun word cloud and the data behind the 270 most common word-forms in the book.
For this week’s Makeover, Andy picked a dataset that looks at the fiscal health of all 50 US states. Where do different states place in the ranking?
