flowing data

If you are a baker and you want to be a database administrator, how could you get there? Nathan Yau of Flowing Data created this fun interactive chart, which uses career data from the Current Population Survey to show possible paths that connect one job to another based on real people’s job changes.


Minimum Wage Versus Inflation


This series of maps shows how increases in the U.S. minimum wage have lagged behind inflation.

Business management tool provider Bonsai examined data from thousands of freelancers to explore how often freelancers are paid late and what additional factors affect whether invoices are paid on time.
