Makeover Monday, turned into Makeover Sunday night.
Business Insider are such a prolific bunch, they keep coming up with good content for Makeover Monday.
There wasn’t a lot in this one apart from an odd “other”. I’m fine with the use of other when it represents a small part of the whole, but in this case I find it lazy journalism, ¼ of the bandwidth is going to other but the chart doesn’t provide us any indication of what other might be.
Anyway, the best way to demonstrate this would probably be using a bar chart as it would clearly indicate the top hogger of bandwidth and we would be able to sort it as well.
But I had a sweet tooth and did something else, here’s the original:
I did a lollipop and a bunch of donuts, (I said I had sweet tooth)
Out of the two the lollipop chart works best, it is clearer and the donuts get difficult to distinguish between them at the lower values. I hadn’t done donuts in a while so it was good to recall the technique.
Here’s a blog from Andy Kriebel that shows how they can be built in Tableau.
