These ‘moving bubbles charts’ have caught my attention.
Most recently, I found this one from the Generations and Gender Programme (GGP) that shows family structure, number of children and age across a number of countries. (see bottom of page)
The GGP plot cites this Nathan Yau piece from Flowing Data A Day in the Life: Work and Home.
And one of the first I’ve seen was from CBPP showing SNAP churn, Most SNAP Participants Move In and Out of Work: An Animated Look.
I expect this type of visualization will be helpful as we consider program dynamics (entry and exit) from Oregon’s Self-Sufficiency programs.
