David Bowie – Peak performing albums

Standard

Interactive viz:
The Albums of David Bowie – Peak positions

Hover over the box plot chart to see the albums that charted by decade.

Description:

Quite simply, Bowie’s best charting albums. All the UK number ones on the right, and all the albums box plotted by decade on the left. Data gathered from extracting info from the official charts .com. Done by using google sheets smart little function ‘=importhtml’ then a little bit of ‘text to columns’ using Alteryx to get rid of the carriage returns and I had a nice dataset to play with. Thanks to Charlotte in my office for doing the Alteryx work, unfortunately I couldn’t get EasyMorph updated by IT in time to do it with that, given the new update now has this functionality…. 🙂

 

Takeaway:

  • Clearly (and possibly quite rightly in my own opinion) the 70’s the most successful in terms of chart success. Median peak position of all albums charted in the 70’s was 3, which is quite an achievement, given Bowie had 15 albums chart.
  • The 90’s arguably the weakest in terms of chart success, however this was also the decade Bowie had most albums chart in his life time (19 albums).
  • The 80’s saw most No. 1
    • Scary Monsters
    • Changes
    • Lets Dance
  • In 1973 Bowie had two number ones charting at No.1 for 5 weeks each, the legendary Aladdin Sane and Pin ups.

Proportion of students in sustained employment after graduation

Interact with the viz to dig into provider level detail, take a look at gender differences; 1, 3 and 5 years after graduation and region specific proportions and differences.

Description:

Finishing off 2017 with another LEO based viz . This time taking a look at the proportion of students in sustained employment further study or both, 3 years after graduation. Why? The UK based Teaching Excellence framework (TEF) picked up this metric (currently as a supplementary metric) for assessment and will, in due course, gain attention for monitoring in months/years to come.

Takeaway:

  • Sector wide, Nursing graduates TOP for sustained employment prospects: 87% remaining in sustained employment 3 years after graduation, least in sustained employment are graduates from Language subject areas.

TOP5 subject areas for sustained employment, further study or both are:

  • Nursing
  • Mathematical Sciences
  • Architecture Building & Planning
  • Subjects Allied to Medicine
  • Physical Sciences

If the UK HE STAFF base were 100 people

If the UK HE Staff demographic were 100 people

Description:

Ongoing BREXIT talks pricked my attention yet again this week, So I have chosen to take a look at UK HE Staff data to understand how the UK sector is made up. This viz presents the stark ratio of UK to Non UK domiciled staff working in UK Higher Education in 2015/6.
The data used in this visual is the most up to date at present (and shows the pre-Brexit decision proportions). I am keen to take a look at this data again as soon as the revised figures are published in early 2018.
In addition to the headline viz above, the visual below shows the distribution of UK to Non UK staff by staff category.
staff_%

 

Takeaway: UK vs Non UK staff proportions

  • Overall, 21% of the UK HE staff base is made up of Non UK nationals.
  • Academic staff are best represented by non UK nationals making up 31% of the category base. least represented Non UK staff in Non Academic roles in HE, making up a mere 11% of the staff category in 2015/6.
  • What will post Brexit look like for UK HE? 2016/7 and 201/8 data will unfold in due course.

#Makeovermonday dataset wk 46 2017 – This weeks data set picked up the story run by the Business insider highlighting the rise of snapchat among teenagers.

The data set itself didn’t really do anything for me to be honest, but felt I would pop in a quick treemap to be viewed on a mobile phone as it seemed appropriate and designing for a mobile is always tricky given space is at such a premium.

Takeaway:

  • Snapchat is now the most popular social networking service among the teen set by far.
