How likely is a seven-game NBA Finals series? (originally posted at StatSoft.com)

It’s been many, many years since I’ve cared about the NBA Finals.  But one of the two teams is from my home town of Oklahoma City.  In the past few years, the city in which I grew up went from having no basketball team, to having a mediocre basketball team, to having a great basketball team.  It makes me vicariously proud, like the first time I saw my daughter write her name legibly or dunk…See More

Amanda Shankle-Knowlton replied to Vincent Granville's discussion Fun fact about bathtubs: the Coriolis effect in the group Math and Computer Science Problems
"Seems like the Internet consensus is that bathtubs are too small to be affected by the Coriolis effect...though I was amused to be reminded of the Bart vs. Australia episode of The Simpsons."

UN Millennium Development Goal Progress: Water, water, everywhere? (originally posted at StatSoft.com)

A few years ago, I was in rural West Texas looking for headstones of family members in a cemetery.  Fun way to spend a Saturday, right? It was nearly record-setting heat in July, and I didn’t bring enough water with me. The search took longer than any of us had expected and by the time I was thirsty, I was starting to feel awful. I found a rusty faucet in the ground and frantically turned the handle. I didn’t care if it was treated water that was safe to drink or not. It was wet, and that’s all…See More

"Random "audits" of results - find a way to pick a random set of results out of a random report, ideally have someone else not involved with the original analytics independently verify results.  Enough data and it'll give you a…"

Are housing prices, mortgage rates, and construction related? - originally posted at StatSoft.com

If you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m kind of a nerd. I heard on the news the other day that home prices are falling once again, and my first thought was “I want to see that graphed!” rather than “Oh no, the economy is collapsing!”  I grabbed the Case Shiller Home Price index information and plotted it as a simple time series in a Line Plot. Easy. But…See More

Ethics of Graph-Making: Originally posted at StatSoft.com

In a few political and data-visualization blogs the past several days, there has been a kerfuffle concerning this bar chart that the Wall Street Journal published. The gist of the chart is that the bulk of the taxable income in this country is earned by…See More

"I enjoyed every minute of this competition.  The odd responses and wagers.  Ken's "Simpsons "quote.  And I especially like that my two year old now claims that her favorite show is Jeopardy."

Would you like fries with your bubble plot? - StatSoft.com Data Visualization Blog Post

Published February 16, 2011. I was on the drive to work this morning and thought “I want to make a bubble plot!”  Luckily, I was able to contain my enthusiasm and arrive at work without running any red lights. However, I did not know what information I wanted to show in my bubble plot.  I’ve seen Hans Rosling present quite a few bubble charts, so using some kind of country data or US State data seemed like a…See More
