Diabetes Obesity Relationship Map and Dashboard

Here’s an interesting data visualization I put together recently in Tableau Public from public data (from the US Department of Agriculture). Interesting quick analysis, showing some real hotspots, a packed bubble chart of adult diabetes and childhood obesity by state, and a relationship between childhood obesity and adult diabetes.

The visualization panes contain a map of diabetes prevalence (percent of population), and a scatter plot of adult diabetes vs. childhood obesity. Love the scatter plots for trying to review correlation and outliers. Fairly easy to create, though the data is squished in the dashboard view. I would embed each of these separately if I was a journalist… but I’m not!
