I made a little game for a seminar on data visualization. Can you test it out for me? http://mybinder.org/repo/aflaxman/iths-communicating-results-visually-2
I had two colleagues call my attention to a cool use of GBD 2010 estimates recently: the Economist observed World Hepatitis Day by calling attention to the deaths due to hepatitis as compared to the deaths due to HIV. It is very nice to see these numbers getting out into the world.
But there are a lot of metrics to use for this comparison, and a lot of ways to show them besides a four-colored map. Find a country of interest from their map, and then make a detailed comparison on the GBD-Compare tool: China, North Africa/Middle East, United States.
A few months ago, I had great success invoking the internet to come up with the “hello, world” of statistical graphics.
p.s. google vincent vega to learn the pop culture joke behind this strangely named python package.
Very cool new visualizations of the GBD2010 results are now on-line: http://viz.healthmetricsandevaluation.org/gbd-compare/
