Makeover Monday: 12 Ways to Visualize the Gender Gap of Federal Workers

No comments
Good friend Nelson Davis provided another great makeover example for this week. It started with this tweet from Jon Schwabish:

As I was thinking about this makeover, I couldn't settle on a single best way to visualize this data. I did know, though, that these moons/pies/donuts/dots needed to communicate more effectively. I've come up with 12 alternatives, each of which works way better than the original. The reason there are 12 is because there are multiple ways to display the dimensions based on the story you want to emphasize. And yes, I could have come up with another 12.

Special thanks for Carl Allchin for his feedback and help with the text on the tabs in the story points.
