Data Visualizations of Vital Statistics

vital statistics visualization

Here are two well done data visualizations by mathematician and software design Brad Lyon and graphic designer Bill Snebold.

The first depicts real-time information about births and deaths in the United States. Whenever and wherever one of those events occurs, the map shows it.

The second depicts the same real-time information worldwide. (Click ‘Restart Simulation’ if either data visualization doesn’t automatically start when you visit it).

The Atlantic monthly magazine explains more background about these data visualizations.
