I would love to see the WHO's data - which normalizes all alcohol, instead of just spirits - in the format of the Quarts chart.

Maps are often not a good choice for geo data.


I really like the fact that there are actually three different vertical axes, South Korea, the rest of the top row, then everywhere else. I had to deal with similar three different axes data when looking at homicide counts in US cities over time. I think it's a pretty typical problem in count based data.


The map attributed to The Atlantic belongs to The Economist, it was just reposted by the former.
