The objective of this lesson is to learn different different data visualization techniques using country-level geo-demographic data.
Using the variable values shown in the data table at the bottom of the map, complete the color mapping table so that each color corresponds to a range of values
Paint each country by matching its variable value with a color in the color mapping table. Recommended practice is to use "cool" colors such as blue for low variable values. "Hot" colors such as orange and red should be used for high values.
Life expectancy at birth(years)
Life expectancy at birth(years) Definition
This entry contains the average number of years to be lived by a group of people born in the same year, if mortality at each age remains constant in the future. The entry includes total population as well as the male and female components. Life expectancy at birth is also a measure of overall quality of life in a country and summarizes the mortality at all ages. It can also be thought of as indicating the potential return on investment in human capital and is necessary for the calculation of various actuarial measures.
