Workout Wednesday: Looks vs. Personality

8 comments
This is my last Workout Wednesday challenge for you. Next week, Rody Zakovich will be taking the reins. If you're not familiar with his work, check out his blog. Thank you Rody for continuing this project for the Community!!

Ok, so for week 53, you need to recreate this viz, which is a remake of a viz from YouGov and one which I wrote about before.


Requirements

  • Get the data from data.world
  • I used the Raleway font, but if you can't use it, don't worry about it.
  • The dot plot must show a close circle for men and an open circle (filled white) for women.
  • There should be two annotations that point to three places.
  • The three places where the annotations points to must show the dots connected.
  • The dashboard is 600x700.
  • Match the title, legend and footer.
  • Match the tooltips.
  • There must be solid vertical lines for 0 and 100 and a dashed line at 50 with labels for each at the top of the viz.
  • There must be white vertical gridlines every 10%.
  • There must be white space between each nationality.

I think that's everything. If not, let me know. Post a link on Twitter and tag @VizWizBI, @EmmaWhyte and @RodyZakovich. Thanks for all of your participation this year and I look forward to seeing how Rody take it forward.

Good luck!

    1. Hi Oussama. It looks like you have subtotals turned on and they're at the bottom. Is that correct? If so, try changing your band color.

  2. Hi Andy. The subtotals are Off. It's Value Axis and I turned the Default Axis Font to White. I need to turn off the Show Header, but when I do it, it takes off also the other Axis in the top (0 50 100).

    1. Yes you need to hide the header. Move your sub totals to the top.

  3. Hi Andy, I am curious to know how do you get the information of " Ranked personality higher than looks", how the calculation works? Thanks!

    1. Download the workbook and find out. Part of the challenge is figuring that out.
