Same dataset - Two different kind of visualizations

Data is bits and bytes and visualization has the power to tell the story in multiple forms. Today I wish to share two different visualization for the same dataset.


Here is the link to the dataset and the dashboard as shown below




And here is the second Dashboard visual using cloropleth 





 You can analyze the pros and cons of both kind of visuals. Both of the visuals are pretty interesting and the key point is what story each one of is trying to tell.

For the choropleth, click on the measures on the right hand side. You can switch to pick the rate or any other measure

The choropleth is horrible -- because it's reporting absolute numbers rather than rates, it ends up being just a U.S. population density map.

Very interesting... Obviously I found the chloropleth very pleasting
