DVC Day 1

(This Post is part of my 30 day Data Visualization Challenge – you can follow along using the ‘challenge’ tag!)

For the first visualization, I kept it very simple:


– Easy to read
– Provides some value: we can see that price does not have a normal distribution, but rather a positively skewed leptokurtic distribution. I am only 70% sure I’m using these words correctly. (Thanks Professor Field!)

– Not really very interesting
– Pretty ugly
– Does not explain what determines price, only what the prices are.
