Andy Kirk, from Visualising Data has launched a very interesting initiative called “data visualisation census” which aims to build a census of people interested in data visualization. During one week, people form all over the world have completed and returned their responses.
I have done some visualizations with the answers available from March 19th to March 24th (the last day to send results is March 26th).
Once I had one file with cleaned answers and another with geographic coordinates, I merged and did some graphs them using R
The resulting file can be downloaded here.
Check out an interactive version here
Some headers in the resulting file may need an extra explanation:
– month_int = month of the year when became interested in data visualization
– year_int = year when became interested in data visualization
– last column = time when the survey was received.
