Population pyramid

2012-03-19 22:11:43.141461+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

I was digging about for useful JavaScript visualization stuff, and on the d3.js (Data Driven Documents) page I found this really cool d3.js demo visualizing the Population Pyramid. Use the arrow keys to explore the effects of medicine improving to allow women to survive their childbearing years, and the gender disparities of those killed in various wars.

A "holy shit" observation: Watch that 1950-55 bar slide from male to female as you scroll between the 1960s and the 1970s. The Vietnam war?

wow. That is one fine data display. Worthy of Tuft's books' next printing for sure. Thanks for sharing this, Dan.
