Food Ingredients by Cuisine
Statistician and data visualization expert Nathan Yau looked into a dataset of food ingredients from about 40 thousand recipes across 20 world cuisines — it came from recipe recommendation service Yummly — and created a visualization that enables an insightful comparison of ingredient usage by cuisine. Find out what ingredients define each cuisine — Brazilian, British, Cajun Creole, Chinese, Filipino, French, Greek, Indian, Irish, Italian, Jamaican, Japanese, Korean, Mexican, Moroccan, Russian, Southern U.S., Spanish, Thai, and Vietnamese — and even more on the FlowingData blog.
Social Connectedness Across U.S.
Quoctrung Bui and Emily Badger from The New York Times‘ The Upshot conducted an interesting research into how Americans are connected on Facebook in terms of location. Take a look at their cool interactive map of the social connectedness and see how probable it is that someone living in a certain U.S. county has Facebook friendship ties with someone from any other county around the country.
10 Years Since 2008 Global Financial Crisis
Reuters made an impressive interactive visual story, analyzing what has changed since the Lehman Brothers’ collapse in 2008, what has remained the same, and what may well trigger the next big financial crisis. Join five Reuters journalists — Dan Burns, Noah Barkin, Jennifer Hughes, Howard Schneider, and Karolina Tagaris — as they discuss all this from different angles (markets, politics, financial services, macroeconomy, and wealth distribution), and check out multiple charts that accompany the story to see what data tells us.
U.S. Federal Government’s Discretionary and Mandatory Spending in 1962—2023
