Data Sketch by Mona Chalabi

A collection of small data visualisations on taboo topics.

I want these data visualizations to remind non-experts of a time when numbers weren’t daunting, disinteresting or dubious. The sketches are intended to be as accessible as cartoons but convey data most people assume would be alienating to them.

But I also hope to convey some of the imprecision of statistics. Looking at the hand-drawn sketches, it’s impossible to forget that a (possibly flawed!) human, not a computer made decisions about which data to collect and how to convey it.
