Farmer Suicides in India – Visualization Part II
Last time we showed you a static version of the trends of farmer suicides in India. This time around we present to you a motion timeline of the farmer suicide. The data here is from 2001 to 2008 and captures the suicide rate in the states with the highest number of farmer mortality.
While the above table is on absolute numbers, here is how the suicide percentage moved for these states.
You may play around with the data as much. We would love your comments on this experiment with Google Fusion Tables
In the next edition, thanks to some direction provided by @S_Sivakumar, we will try and explore the reasons behind such a dismal trend
