#MakeoverMonday: Who's More Popular? Eva or Andy?

No comments
And here we are, four years after starting Makeover Monday as a community project, it's my last week being involved. It's been a fantastic growth and learning opportunity. Thank you!

For the last week of 2019, I thought it would be fun to look back at the download stats for Makeover Monday on data.world. They've been hosting the data for us on their platform for over two years now.

I created the original viz using Google Data Studio.

What works well?

  • A clear, simple title
  • Using a filter for drilling down for a specific year
  • Labels on the inside end of the bars
  • Tooltips are very responsive

What could be improved?

  • Remove the x-axis
  • Make the font bigger for the subjects
  • Make it clear that this is only showing the top 10
  • Include an option to increase the number of bars shown

What I did

My primary goal was to poke fun at Eva. So I looked at who was more popular, she or I? I create BANs for some simple metrics and a couple simple line charts by week.

I chose to only use data from 2019 since it looked way too low for 2018. Perhaps the tracking only started at a certain point; I wasn't sure, so I decided to exclude 2018.

And that's it! I'm done! Keep participating; I guarantee you'll improve every week.
