Data Viz Done Right

Makeover Monday: Women are more likely to always wash their hands after using the toilet

No comments
When Eva told me about this week's data set, all I could do was chuckle. Being a huge fan of the squatty potty (and the dad of four kids), I knew this was a data set that was ripe for analysis. Unsure of what the squatty potty is and WHY YOU NEED IT, watch this video...it's indeed magical!

Anyway, onto the viz to critique:


What works well?

  • The design of the responses as a stacked bar chart is easy to understand.
  • The responses are ordered from highest to lowest.
  • Women and men are assigned difference colors in the text
  • Good title and subtitles
  • Colors are easy enough to distinguish

What could be improved?

  • Comparisons between women and men in the same categories are hard to make
  • Maybe there could be an easier way to distinguish between poo and pee

My Goals

  • Do something quick (like 10 minutes); I'm late for MM for the first time ever, but it's ok because I'm on holiday with my Dad and Brother.
  • Make the comparisons easier
  • Use colors that are a bit easier to associate to the men and women categories

With that in mind, here's my Makeover Monday for week 44 2018.
