Bubble Chart Map: Inequality in the United States

Here we have found a bubble chart map for displaying the inequality in the United States from 1989 to 2011. On the map, you can select a specific year for seeing the statistic results in Gini Index, Median Index and Poverty Rate respectively, or click the “Play” icon to see the changes all through the years. You can also mouse over the bubbles to see the statistics details for all categories. Click the below image to see the interactive map:

Map Reviews: 3.5/5 Stars

I appreciate it…

  • Clearly presents the changes all through the years by selecting different year in the category line
  • Simple and neat design that won’t distract readers’ focus

However…

  • Not-informative enough as it can provide details in the popup box rather than just listing out the statistics. Table or bar chart image can be inserted to the popup box that make the map more presentable.
  • Border line for states can be sharper that readers would not be confused by the locations and sizes of the bubbles.
