Best Practices
:

  • Simple color usage
  • Excellent layout
  • Perfect use case for slope graphs
  • Headline gives a great summary
  • Consistent scaling
  • Great labelling everywhere
  • Including the axis ticks only on the left side nicely reduces clutter
  • Nice inclusion of the actual numbers

Recommended Enhancements:

  • Needs a title
  • Should the charts be sorted somehow? I don’t see any logic to the sorting. I would have chosen to sort by one the metrics.
