Animated Visual: A Day in the Life of Americans

One of the more effective data visualizations I’ve seen in a while, this animated visual is a time-varying Markov chain developed by Nathan Yau of FlowingData.  This is a simulation of 1,000 people’s average day. It’s based on 2014 data from the American Time Use Survey, made way more accessible by the ATUS Extract Builder.
