Featured visualization: SAS’ Mike Drutar created a nested bar chart using the SAS® Graph Builder in SAS® Viya® to see the distribution of total weather events throughout the year. You can see which quarter (or season) of the year specific storm events happen. More so, since the visual is a nested bar chart, you can see the number of events for each quarter as a proportion of the total events for the year. The report’s data source comes from a set of csv files on the SAS® Viya® Example Data Sets webpage.

SAS has teamed up with the News Literacy Project on this quiz as part of a larger Democracy depends on us nonpartisan nationwide campaign to combat election misinformation. With Election 2020 looming this fall in the U.S., data is being used to influence opinions. Being data literate has never been more important.
