Arizona Has a Lot of Uninsured Kids

Source: FiveThirtyEight
Author: Anna Maria Barry-Jester

Best Practices:
  • Arizona is highlighted in the article and clearly highlighted in the table
  • United States average splits the top 5 and bottom 5, creating nice spacing
  • Axis length is consistent
  • Sources are clear, yet out of the way
  • Consistent with the FiveThirtyEight style
  • The % symbol is only on the first label; it's not necessary to repeat it everywhere
Recommended Enhancements:
  • Fix capitalization of the title
