a picture is worth a thousand words

The words of the numbers

Encouraged by this news, I made my own analysis of the last budget’s speech by Alistair Darling.

First I recreated the face of Mr. Darling with the data suggested. As usual the size of the words is proportional to the repetition.

Later, using my own text analysis over the last eleven budget’s speeches, I made different visualizations showing distance’s relationship and the evolution of the most used, or most significative, words.

The last one is focused in the word ‘tax’. In this case the distance to the words is the average distance in the speeches. The big one represent all years from 2005 to 2010. The other two are focused in their own year.

Due to the filesize I recomend you to download and navigate the PDF version.
