Assignment 2 - Funding vs Uncommitted Pledges


Tools Used: Tableau, Microsoft Excel, Ghetto Scripting of Excel

The story I wanted to portray was the relationship of how many government provided funding to haiti versus how many promised pledges, which have no legal obligation to pay. I decided to use a scatter plot to show this relationship in order to emphasize the ratio. I used the color in order to uniquely identify the countries, but also added annotations to clarify which point related to which country. Lastly, the size of the ring corresponds to the size of the population. I wanted to know the story about how higher populated countries donated committed funding rather than just pledges.
