Sorry for reposts. I had some issues with the automod.

OC using Tableau. Based on Hans Rosling's demographics visualizations.

This is brilliant...any hopes for someone who has never coded to get to that level if I teach myself?

I taught myself Tableau using a few $10 courses on Udemy over the last few months. It definitely makes the visualization process enjoyable and intuitive.

Tableau Public is free, and they have a handful of tutorials that will get you running. The coding is quite easy to learn, and is minimal (about the same extent, if not less than excel); while a majority of the work is done on the backend. Just grab some datasets and see what you can make!

Thank you! Definitely will try your suggestions.

this is a really underrated viz. I like this a lot but I would maybe throw in: 1) A legend for the bubble size 2) A bar graph or something that also dynamically changes to visualize the trend among regions more clearly.

It's definitely something that would be best suited for a presentation, while a more detailed visualization is required for it to stand on its own. Thanks for the suggestion!

Either way, I'm certain you can pick out which bubbles belong to China, Japan, India, and the United States without the legend!

I usually hate GIF visualizations but this is fantastic - very intuitively and simply tells the story. Great job!
