Makeover Monday: Maternity Leave Pay Rate in OECD Countries

No comments
During this week's viz review, Eva and I were providing some feedback on this viz by Anik Sircar:

While we were giving the feedback, I had an idea for how I could use Anik's work as inspiration for a slightly different version of the chart. Before I get to that, here's his next version after iterating.

I love the simplification of the view; it's now much easier to understand. My take on this turns his view into a more minimalist dot plot that breaks it down into two columns that conveniently are above the OECD average on the left and below on the right. Originally I had it as three columns, but Eva suggested two and it worked out perfectly.

Thanks for the inspiration Anik!
