Less boring accounts
Corporate statistics are a dry affair, perhaps deliberately so.
This viz is inspired by something I saw on Chartr which I hope breathes fresh life into corporate reporting.
I give you a prettier version of Tesco's annual results as a sankey chart...
Sankey charts can be problematic if they're not interactive or have an immediately obvious flow. Which is why this one works unusually well, having a clear flow and an obvious insight.
Grocers work on very thin margins.
