Title variants

Application of selected forms and techniques of data visualization in analyzing socio-economic structures

Languages of publication



The paper presents a selection of visualization methods which may be useful for the analyses and comparisons of socio-economic structures. The work is focused on the techniques that do not require dimensionality reduction, which is usually accompanied by the loss of some information from the dataset. The methods of graphical presentation of structures and illustration of their similarities and dissimilarities are considered as well as strengths and weaknesses of various solutions are outlined. The discussion is based on data concerning the structures of education attainment in the European Union countries.
