#data19 has arrived and with it a live #MakeoverMonday session with A LOT of people. We want to use that opportunity of getting everyone in a room with their ideas and skills to tackle a topic that is very relevant today. Literacy and how literacy rates differ across countries, ages and gender.
For week 45, Andy selected a dataset about Las Vegas. It contains a number of metrics, including visitor numbers, gaming revenue, occupancy rates, etc.
There are quite a few stories in the data.
Before winter really takes hold, let’s look at some sunshine hours in cities around the world.
Content warning: This post and the data visualisations within it focus on the topic of suicide. If you are not comfortable with the topic, please don’t feel obliged to continue.

For week 41, Andy chose a dataset about donations accepted by political parties, published by the electoral commission. The visualisation is an interactive Tableau dashboard, but it’s far from best practices and screams for a makeover
For week 39 we are looking at eviction notices for San Francisco, leading to tenants having to vacate their homes.

This week #MakeoverMonday is collaborating once again with the team of the SDG Action Campaign ahead of the Global Goals week during the UN General Assembly.
There is a dataset we’ve had in our backlog for months and I’m excited that Andy decided to use it for this week. It’s about book checkouts at the Seattle Public Library, particularly those of work by James Patterson.
September 1st is the first day of autumn, meteorologically speaking. So I picked a dataset about how Americans feel about the different seasons.
The original viz and data comes from YouGov.
