Winners of the 16th Data for a Cause challenge

For the 16th Data For A Cause challenge worked with the Institute for Economics and Peace, a think tank that develops new metrics to understand peace in order to make it more achievable, to visualize Global Peace Gap.

We used the 2019 Global Peace Index (GPI) data that ranks 163 countries on 23 qualitative and quantitative indicators from highly respected sources.

According to GPI we live a world in which the tensions, conflicts, and crises that emerged in the past decade remain unresolved. The gap between the least and most peaceful countries continues to grow. Perception of leadership in the world’s most influential countries has been declining. Confidence in US leadership has fallen the most in the past five years, with people now having more confidence in China than the US on average.

The goal of the 16th Data For A Cause challenge was to analyze the diverging and converging trends of the least and most peaceful countries of the world, of certain regions, or countries sorted by economic class, and visualize the changes in Global Peace Gap from 2008 to 2019.

Thank you to everyone who submitted their visualizations and everyone who supported the volunteers by liking and sharing their work!

With so many great submissions, it was really hard to select the winners.

Without further ado…
