A d3.js visualization: The Health and Wealth of Nations, 1800-2009


Follow this link to view an interactive visualization I built in summer 2017:

This animated chart shows inflation-adjusted income per capita against life expectancy in 180 nations from 1800 to 2009. Each circle represents a nation, and changes in size to represent changes in the nation’s population. Hover over the circle to see the nation’s name.
East Asian and Pacific countries are yellow, South Asian countries are orange, European and Central Asian countries are lime green, North and South American countries are pink, Sub-Saharan African countries are turquoise, and Middle Eastern and North African countries are violet.

I built this in Metis Academy’s data visualization course to exercise my skills. It is inspired by a similar visualization made by the Gapminder Foundation.
