Makeover Monday, 2017 #8

Week 8 is all about potatoes. European Union potato sector stats to be precise. Eurostat provide a very detailed analysis of the EU potato sector on their website:

Eurostat potato sector stats page.

The article is very detailed and does take some time to read, but the key points are in bold so it can be scanned to get an idea of the main stories. The use of tables provides a lot of background data but again the emphasis is on taking the time to digest the data. For my makeover I’ve tried to focus on three key points – most of the production is in a small number of countries; Germany is the biggest producer; but France achieves the best price. The viz can also be seen on Tableau Public.
