Interactive infographics

Statistics Netherlands has traditionally presented its data in many ways: in articles, press releases, tables, databanks, maps, bar charts, pie charts, and line graphs. New interactive visualisation techniques were first introduced a few years ago, with the Business Cycle Tracer and the Population Pyramid as the best known examples. As Statistics Netherlands has recently been developing an increasing number of interactive visualisations, they are presented in an overview below. These visualisations give a clearer insight into how important data on a specific area interact. As soon as new interactive visualisations are completed and released, they will be added to the overview.
