Canada’s Most Comprehensive, Interactive Public Health Report Card (CCHS 2015-16 Combined)

I just added a Tableau Public set of dashboards showing combined 2015 and 2016 year results for the Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS), which allowed for comparisons and rate calculations at geographies smaller than provincial and territorial levels. These included Census Metropolitan Areas (CMAs) and health areas (units, zones, districts, etc.), as well as combined large, medium and small population centres, and rural areas, within a province or territory. The roughly 680 thousand rows of data, including calculations of statistical significance in differences done by Statistics Canada, allowed for some amazing comparisons… and eye opening results! There currently is nothing else quite like this published by anybody to show CCHS results!

I could not embed the dashboards here because WordPress does not allow for JavaScript. However, you can see the dashboards with explanations here.

Click on the following link if you just want to use the dashboards directly, without explanations.

And click on the following link if you want the latest version of CCHS results, 2016, but without geographies below the provincial level.

Canada’s Most Up to Date, Interactive Public Health Report Card (CCHS 2016, 2015)

I recently updated my 2015 Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) Tableau dashboards which showed results in an interactive report card format, with 2016 data. WordPress does not allow JavaScript usage for me to embed those report cards, to explain how they worked and what information you could gather from them far faster, and more effectively, than just from data tables. However, I was able to do it on another site through the link below.

If you view it and have any questions or feedback, please leave them there so the discussions can be in one place as much as possible.

The combined year results, with much more granular geographic results, will be explained soon, but are already posted here if you want to look ahead of time. Thank you.

See How Various Canadians Demographics Have Aged Via Online Dashboards

My latest Tableau dashboards involve Statistic Canada published numbers for Canadian populations in various age groups, provinces and territories, genders, and annually since 1971.  They could be very useful for your work, study, or just interest as they are accessible online, with lots of details, visuals, and downloadable as PDFs or graphic images if you needed a printout of the graphs, charts and/or numbers. The link is to a post with the JavaScript required dashboards that I can’t embed on WordPress, with lots of details on what you should note. However, it is a tool with a lot of flexibility for you to explore Canada’s demographic population numbers on your own! I hope you will try it!

My New Anime/Manga Characters Birthday Interactive Dashboard

One of the more popular posts on my site is a list of 1850+ anime and manga characters’ birthdays. However, it is a static list. You just read through it and remember what you can if you want to analyze it beyond looking up information for reference or curiosity.

Today, I just turned that list into an interactive dashboard (building off a database) where you can SEE the information in so many more ways! It shows distributions by months, days, groups of characters in series, etc. It also makes it easier for people to see what I’m missing, and also have wrong, to help me improve it! I’m sure I can crack 2000 characters one day soon… and cover for the 5 days during the year without a character birthday when some have over 30 characters sharing birthdays!

Unfortunately, I had to put it on another blogging platform, as I will have to with all my Tableau Public “viz” creations because WordPress doesn’t allow for JavaScript. I understand why they do it, but it’s a limitation I can’t work with in blogging about these creations directly. I hope you’ll have a look and see it, maybe even give suggestions for improvements!

Of course, with this set, I can now create something similar for any large set of birthdays for any group with something in common. I’m seeking superhero birthday sets, for example, but I can do famous athletes, actors & actresses, or anything you can think of with birthdays… or even death days!

Know of some such data sets? Please let me know in a comment! Thank you!
