International Women's Day 2022: The Pay Gap in Europe

Sadly, inequality between women and men is still an issue. In 2020, women's gross hourly earnings were on average 13% below those of male paid employees in the European Union. Disappointingly, only five countries in the EU report a gap smaller than 5% with Luxembourg being closest to zero.

Colors and Emotions in Data Visualization

As data visualization practitioners we are both engineers and designers. In our effort to create meaningful visualizations from our data, we transmit our message not only through the particular chart type and title we choose, but also through our choice of colors for the data itself and for any additional design elements.
