Gapminder Data Visualization Assignment
For this assignment, you need to use gapminder.org's Gapminder World to
investigate some relationships between statistics over time. I
suggest you think about some issues related to your major. If you
are a biology major or nursing major, think about some issues related
to global health. If you are an education major, consider
education issues worldwide. International Development
major? Perhaps energy or health or population growth.
Business major? Something related to global economics.
For this assignment, you need to come up with a gapminder visualization
for which you can answer these questions:
1. Describe the different values you are charting over time. (3
2. Describe the results in general. What relationships do you see
displayed generally? (7 pts)
3. Describe some exceptions to the results -- where are there
outliers. Can you explain why those data points are
outliers? (Perhaps you cannot, which is OK, although it would be
better if you could.) (5 pts)
4. What new questions do you have, now that you've learned something
about the data? List two new questions. (10 pts)
Total: 25 points.
Write the answers to these questions in a document (Word or pdf or
text) and submit it via moodle. Use complete sentences.
