Data Visualization Memo
Find a recent data visualization that has been used in the press and discuss its strengths and weaknesses. And then, using the identical data, re-do the data visualization you analyzed.
In your write-up, please describe how you went about replicating the data visualization, what worked well and what you struggled with, and also some critical thinking about how they did on the data visualization front in terms of communicating findings and what modifications you might recommend making.
Pro tip: This is not an assignment to leave to the last minute, as it will likely require some tracking down of data and also require a few attempts at replicating.
