Less boring accounts

April 2019

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...

Tesco annual report

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.
