Number of People, by household food security status, 2015
- The piece of the pie chart that is separated from the rest and the easy to look at color scheme.
- This chart is telling me how many people lived with different food security statuses. One thing that I do not understand is what the definition of food security is. I have the numbers, but I am not sure exactly what they mean. By the look of the chart, it does not look like household food security status is a big issue.
- Likes: How easy the chart is to read and how the numbers are clearly stated.
Dislikes: Levels of food insecurity are just given a label and not a numerical value
Wishes: Definition of food insecurity by household
- First I would include a definition of food insecurity so that my data would be more clear. I would also not give labels to the different groups, but a numerical value. Lastly, I would further categorize the chart by including where the different households are located in the country
Dry Pea and Lentil Production, Harvested Are in US
- The two tone bars and the line that connects them all
- This chart describes the production of dry pea and lentil, and also the area used to produce these crops. The chart has 2 different y axis’ which is a little bit confusing and different. By the look of the chart, the production of these crops steadily grew over the years documented.
- Likes: Good color scheme and displays a lot of information
Dislikes: The years are given as 2 year periods so I am not sure when one starts and one finished
Wishes: The x axis was labeled differently
- First, I would not stack the bars, but put them side by side so it is easier to tell how much of each crop was produced. I would also not use a projection because it could skew the data. Lastly, instead of using two y axis’ I would just use two different graphs.
This graph is the percentage of GMOs used in corn, cotton, and soybeans in the US from 2000-2016. This data was easily accessible, and it clearly shows the increase in GMOs over the years. I wanted to make this graph easy to read, and I wanted it to be easy to tell the numerical values. I spaced the y axis out by 5 to achieve this. The color scheme I used is easy to read, and looks very nice on the white background.
