Learning from print: 2

Another great visualization in the New York Times today.

Some really great paradigms that can be emulated:

  • Mixture of tabular & graphical data
  • The total is displayed right next to the label for each “row”
  • No legend off to the right or bottom. Instead each segment is identified, in context on the chart.
  • The Total Row is separated & also displayed graphically & numerically.
