Interactive mekko charts in R

         · · · ·      · ·

Mekko what? Despite its confusing name, Mekko or Marimekko chart is a simple yet effective data visualisation form. Here is a rundown in R for the interactive Mekko chart under (which is part of this story). I used ggiraph, a great ggplot2 extension that binds d3.js to ggplot2. This allows to easily turn a ggplot2 object into an interactive graphic. The bar height here is proportional to the number of jobs and shows the large difference of jobs for different occupations.
