Data Visualization Weekly: July 27, 2018 — August 3, 2018
How U.S. Uses Its Land
Dave Merrill and Lauren Leatherby from Bloomberg made a nice visual story to explain how land in the United States of America is actually used. Here you can see not only how pasture, forest, cropland, urban, as well as special- and miscellaneous-use types of land are distributed across the country. It is especially interesting to look at the data pieced together in order to compare total acreage estimates across categories and have states (and their size) as a point of reference.
Company Size vs. Pay
The Wall Street Journal analyzed data about more than a thousand U.S. companies to see if their size and median pay correlate. Look at this new study with cool marker charts on the WSJ for details on how companies, small and large, pay their employees.
Education Deserts in U.S.
The Chronicle of Higher Education found out that more than 11 million adults in the United States — it’s 3.5% of all the American adults — live in so-called education deserts without a public college within driving distance. Check out their analysis accompanied by maps and charts, and learn more about where education deserts are located and who lives in those areas.
