Data Visualization


The objective of this lesson is to learn different different data visualization techniques using country-level geo-demographic data.

Target Audience

All ages


  1. 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
  2. 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.

Death rate(deaths/1,000 population) Definition

This entry gives the average annual number of deaths during a year per 1,000 population at midyear; also known as crude death rate. The death rate, while only a rough indicator of the mortality situation in a country, accurately indicates the current mortality impact on population growth. This indicator is significantly affected by age distribution, and most countries will eventually show a rise in the overall death rate, in spite of continued decline in mortality at all ages, as declining fertility results in an aging population.
