As they explain at https://wiredcraft.com/blog/data-visualization-mapping/, this graph leaves out Hawaii, Alaska, and D.C., which means it is not completely representing the data. My data visualization commits an even greater crime; I picked which data points to use to create the most dramatic results. All the data that I do present is truthful, but I also chose to leave out some foods that would have made my point less clear. For example, strawberries contain only 7g of sugar, but including them would have made them look healthier than almost all of the sweets I included. Thus, I chose to omit strawberries and other foods that ruined my lie.
Finally, my graph breaks Tufte's second rule since there are very few labels on my graph describing what I am measuring, which leads to ambiguity.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
