My submissions to the Makeover Monday data visualization challenge. My goal is not to do every challenge, rather to use this as an opportunity to improve my data visualization skills and learn to use new tools while working with some of the more interesting datasets.
I’ve also added a bit of editorial content to provide some thoughts and context on the data.
This one is a bit simpler and not much of a makeover, but it’s been a particularly busy week, and I definitely plan on revisiting this at some point.
For now, I’m just happy to be sticking with the schedule.
My first Makeover Monday submission. I wanted to do something a bit more interesting, so I added a second dataset that helps provide some context and compares the student loan in each state with the average post-graduate salary, answering a question of how long it takes to actually pay off the student loan.
This was my first Tableau data visualization and technically not made specifically for Makeover Monday, but I submitted it when I saw that they used this dataset for one of the challenges.
After my first four Makeover Monday submissions for weeks 24-27, I had a chance to go back and look at previous challenges.
I played a bit with formatting options in Tableau, which I find a bit limiting, but the result is not too bad.
