Road Traffic Death Rates from the World Heath Organization


Road Traffic Death Rates from the World Heath Organization


I enjoy reading many different blogs that include data visualizations, particularly those that include Tableau Public posts. A couple of weeks ago I ran across an interesting visualization at Russian Sphinx. Her post included a dashboard of World Health Organization data on road traffic deaths. I liked the style she used for her map visualization but wanted to see if I could create a version with the following goals:

1. Provide a high level view of the best and worst areas for traffic deaths (using color)
2. Utilize shape to classify the mod of transport related to the highest death rate (in each country)
3. Display specific metrics by continent and country based on selections made by the information consumer (filters/highlights)
