#MakeoverMonday 2022 Week 36 - Median Age at First Marriage in America

No comments

This was a relatively simple data set and I was able to build quite a few vizzes during Watch Me Viz. I ended up with something more complex that it needed to be, but it was fun figuring out how to create the calculations.

Here's how it works:

  1. Compare the median age at first marriage of each state to the US average for 2006-2010
  2. Compare the median age at first marriage of each state to the US average for 2015-2019
  3. Check whether the State 
    1. Stayed above the US average in both time periods
    2. Stayed below the US average in both time periods
    3. Moved from below the US average to above the US average
    4. Moved from above the US average to below the US average

Got it? Yes, it a bit confusing. In the end, we were able to highlight 6 states that moved above the US average to below the US average. All others stayed the same. What does this mean from an analytical perspective? Probably nothing, but it looks better than the original.
