Oftentimes, the way data is visualized and presented is more influential than the research itself. To demonstrate and evaluate this theory, you will watch a visualization of data. Visit and watch the presentations by Dr. Hans Rosling entitled Hans Rosling shows the best stats youâ€™ve ever seen.
Hans Rosling describes how international data trends on health can affect the security of nations. Identify at least two types of charts and tables that Dr. Hans Rosling uses to illustrate his data, and answer the following questions:
- Do Dr. Roslingâ€™s research findings become more or less clear with the use of his visualization techniques?
- What are some potential weaknesses you find with using Dr. Roslingâ€™s visualization techniques?
