    Economist Daily Charts makeover

    Andy Cotgreave

      I’m a great fan of the Economist Daily Chart blog – it’s one of my favourite resources. However, today’s chart, about the correlation between height and construction time left me a bit cold. Sine the main point of the article was the short length of construction time, it seems wrong that the chart sticks that measure beneath the axis, where it’s not prominent. I transcribed the data and tried a couple of different approaches – set the bar length to be Time to Build instead and use colour to show Height.

       

      On twitter, Jon Schwabish suggested a Slopegraph, so I’ve added one of those too.

       

      What do you think?
