Graphic Detail: Daily Visualization Ideas from The Economist


I simply love reading The Economist – the source for some of the best written, most insightful business journalism in the world.

One of my go-to sections on The Economist website is the “Graphic Detail” feature, which provides a daily visualization of data that’s relevant to a current business issue.  The people who create these visualizations are pros… and it shows. 


This one displays the stark differences in youth unemployment in Arab countries against world averages. A complex insight distilled in a single, easy-to read viz. Very concept-efficient!

I use Graphic Detail as a source of visualization ideas for my own marketing work.  Maybe I’m a just data geek – or maybe you might find it useful too! Check it out:
