#WOW2022 W28: Can you build a butterfly chart?


This week my challenge comes from two places of inspiration. Firstly the ONS website and secondly a final interview for someone applying to the Data School. I loved the concept of the chart and it helps with context and also synchronisation of axis. Have fun.


  • Dashboard Size: 800 x 700px
  • 1 sheet
  • Create a butterfly chart showing Male and Female population for 2021
  • Add context to show the total population
  • Format tooltips and axis the same
  • You can do this two ways. Ideally this challenge is focusing on LODs. To need the LOD you need to pivot the data so it has a row per Gender per year. Then we can just keep 2021. 


You can download the data from the ons.gov.uk website by clicking here


When you publish your solution on Tableau Public make sure to take the time and include a link to the original inspiration.  Also include the hashtag #WOW2022 in your description to make it searchable!


After you finish your workout, share on Twitter using the hashtag #WOW2022 and tag @LukeStanke, @_Lorna_Brown, @HipsterVizNinja, @_hughej, and @YetterDataViz
