The blog Bitrebels posted a number of infographics that compare the salaries of self-employed people in the U.S. versus those the U.K. Without picking on this particular design, this graphic shows common mistakes that often apear in infographic illustrations.
- Round up the numbers to the nearest $ 000. The digits behind the comma do not add anything.
- Group data together, a standard bar chart showing the 2 numbers with their delta is much clearer.
- Pick a meaningful comparison unit. More than 3,000 hamburgers is not.
