Session 3: Data and Charts

August 27, 2021

Choosing the best chart type for your data is instrumental in communicating your findings to audiences. In this session, we started with a walkthrough of Shanna Cherubini’s dashboard analyzing new, returning, and recidivist veteran clients, and then we went through a series of chart sketching exercises to practice choosing the right chart for the data question. Topics covered include:

  • Matching Charts to Purpose
  • Sketching to Iterate
  • Why Bar Charts are Often the Best Place to Start!
