This infographic was a redesign of the original graphic by Thomas Porostocky.
The original data used to create this infographic was obtained from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME). The redesign was completed under the guidance of Dr. Jodie Jenkinson as part of an assignment in Data Visualization course.
This redesign focused on improving the accuracy of the annual percent change comparisons by positioning them along a common scale, rather than relying of hue and saturation. As a result, the increasing trend in non-communicable diseases and overall decrease in communicable diseases becomes immediately recognizable.
