death penalties visualization idea

death penalties visualization idea

As i said before i want to show the corrilation between the number of death penalties in each country to the number of people living in said country. I quickly jotted down this almost illegable set of squggiles (no i wasnt just testing to see if my graphics tablet still worked) the way im gonna go about it basicly calculateing the number of people executided in conentant (asia, europe, africa etc.) then show that in comparison to the number of people that live in those areas in total. I feel this will really put the numbers in perspective. 10255014_10152364544381620_4453019212430724493_n 1972529_10152364544696620_1614644806866799073_n

I began by first extracting the countries that had actually carried out their death sentances according to the list provided. By then going through each one i could find out the population  for each country which whould then be grouped into contanants and tallied. the resulting number would give me a number of people which were living under active death penilities. note that the graphic excludes china at the list only stated “thousands”. To get a figure which i could display using my circle bar chart idea i took the population number for each continent and made it into a percentage of 900,000,000. taking that number i then made it a percentage of 360 the resulting number was used to determate how much of the circle to cut away to represent overall population. for example

232,000,000 > 900,000,000 = 25.7

25.7 >360 = 7.1

using the tallied numbers of death sentances carried out, i devided each ove with 100 to figure out how many litte human silohettes (and how much of the silohette) would be showan to repersent death totals. The basic graphic looks like this (below)
