The Guardian's Data Blog


I have been having a good time this week exploring the Guardian's data blog. Some of my favorite entries:

This post asking for readers' thoughts about fundraising in the US presidential campaign.

An entry explaining how to win the Booker Prize - in charts. (That's a screenshot, above.) The charts encompass what happens to an author's sales after winning or even being shortlisted.

Olympics data.

And this stats quiz that "tests your vulnerability to spin." I got 4 out of 5 - how did you do? I should have re-examined this post, but instead I got lazy.
