Can you guess the 5 most common New Year's resolutions? Compare your guesses to the survey results!...
Being a data meister, I'm always on the lookout for seasonal data. I recently did a Web search for "new year's resolutions" and found an interesting article on the You Gov UK website. Of the 30% of British adults who make New Year's resolutions, the article put the resolutions into 14 categories, and created the following bar chart:
The chart "drew me in" but it took too much studying & concentration to make sense of it. First I wondered about the numbers - were they the number of people, or a percent value? And then I started trying to match up the bar colors with the color legend, and found that to be quite a chore (with 14 colors to try and keep track of).
So, you guessed it - I did a SAS makeover of the graph, where I keep it simple and easy to read!
Were you able to guess the "top 5" resolutions?
What others do you think should be in the list? And do you have any unique resolutions you'd like to share?!?
