White fight or flight?
Here’s a little something I did, overlaying membership data from the racist British National Party and ethnic populations in the UK. See the full size image.

Racist Profiling: BNP membership vs Ethnic Populations

300 days of Swine Flu
Nice image from Michael Paulkner showing the death toll from Swine Flu after 300 days. Larger sizes here.

Blimey. Quite a lot of doom and gloom in those images. I’ll try to make the next one cheerier.

If you’re still hungry for more infographical morsels, check out the last selection.

In the meantime, if you come across any visual delights, please send them through.

    I’d be curious regarding the statistic of number of soldiers in Afghanistan from each country, to see a graphic comparison of number of soldiers in relation to the population size of the country, and/or GDP, etc.

    Good stuff… The death chart is quite telling and why I hate the media. Not even 6,000 deaths vs. over 2.7 million deaths by HIV, yet the pig virus gets all the press.

    Why the bubbles when bars would work just as well and not introduce visual ambiguity due to the old diameter/volume issue that all bubble charts are subject to? Sigh….

    Um… what’s the source for these casualty numbers? No data source is given, and exact H1N1 case numbers from around the globe are extremely questionable and quite uncertain at this juncture.

    And when is the exact starting and end date of these “300 days”? No clarifying reference information is offered, whether for H1N1 or any other disease. Without that to check against, this graph is useless.

    This new CDC report (via Washington Post) gives a more specified — if not as visually snazzy — perspective on the current state of H1N1, at least in the U.S.: http://tinyurl.com/yh99qf7

    What makes H1N1 news is not necessarily its death toll, but rather its unusual strain and extreme transferability.

    As for the graphic… nice aesthetics, weak specifics. Overall: spurious.

    I’d love to see a heatmap of race related crime incidents overlayed on you BNP / ethnic group membership maps
