Chart family:

This dataset outlines how to create a sunburst chart from household expenditure data, using a dataset from Eurostat and the R statistical software. Sunburst charts are used to visualize the distribution of parts within a whole and are composed of a series of concentric rings, each representing one level of a hierarchy, and housing slices representing values within a certain sector. The sunburst chart uses mainly color and arc length or area to encode the values. You will learn to identify ideal use cases and best practices for employing this visualization type in your work. The dataset file is accompanied by a Student Guide and a How-to Guide for creating this chart type using R.
