Here's my makeover of the same chart from back in September made with Tableau. I also include detail about what's wrong with the original chart.



Thanks for the words, Kaiser! A commenter (probably from traffic via this post) linked to his alternate take made with Tableau. He also went the scatter plot route:

I don't understand people's fascination with circles. Regardless if it's a bubble graph, pie chart, or radial bar chart, it's the rare exception when one of these visualizations is the best way to display data.

All of these remakes are vast improvements over the original, but like K.F., I also question the accuracy of the data.

Just read about this sleep schedule infographic, and I have the same question about how they know about those schedules?
