What are ratings?

Ratings let you assess a visualisation according to:

How much a visualisation makes you take notice of it

How well it portrays the true data behind it

Rate visualisations according to your own impressions and expertise. We also ask you to let us know how you rate your own level of expertise in terms of data and visualisation, so that we can filter ratings further in future.

For more information on ratings and levels of expertise, see our help page.

Interactive time series
It is a common practice to create indexes to summarize complex information, in this case about the economy. The drawback of indexes is that they sometimes hide the variation of the information they are based on. This visualization presents the evolution of both the index across time and its underlying indicators. For example, it is easy to see how the decrease of the economic outlook has been followed by a reduction of the number of hours worked in the private sector.
