I like his clever format, with the arrows pointing in all directions.
However, at some point a data set is too small to be worth visualizing, per Tufte, and should be displayed as a table instead. Here, ET does a rethink of a statistical table that molds the numbers into an elegant and useful hybrid, a “table-graphic.”
I wondered if a hybridized display would work well for the Pew data set, so I gave it a try.
Usefully simple, or too simplistic? Comments welcomed.
