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 you’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. Rosling’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. Rosling’s visualization techniques?
