Excel Dashboards – 49 dashboards to visualize US State to State migration trends

Posted on June 12th, 2014 in Charts and Graphs , Cool Infographics & Data Visualizations , VBA Macros - 61 comments

Hello everyone. Stop reading further and go fetch your helmet. Because what lies ahead is mind-blowingly awesome.

About a month and half ago, we held our annual dashboard contest. This time the theme is to visualize state to state migration in USA. You can find the contest data-set & details here.

We received 49 outstanding entries for this. Most of the entries are truly inspiring. They are loaded with powerful analysis, stunning visualizations, amazing display of Excel skill and design finesse. It took me almost 2 weeks to process the results and present them here.

But first, let me apologize

Each of our contest participants spent a lot of time crafting their files. But due to unforeseen personal work, I could not set aside time to process the entries until last week of May. I sincerely apologize for taking this much time to showcase the entries.

What about the winners?

This week our panel of judges will be reviewing these 49 entries. Next week we will share short-listed entries for public voting. Once the voting is complete, we will declare the winner. This process should be completed with-in 2 weeks.

How to read this post?

This is a fairly large post. If you are reading this in email or news-reader, it may not look properly. Click here to read it on chandoo.org.

  1. Each entry is shown in a box with the contestant’s name on top. Entries are shown in alphabetical order of contestant’s name.
  2. You can see a snapshot of the entry and more thumbnails below.
  3. The thumb-nails are click-able. So that you can enlarge and see the details.
  4. You can download the contest entry workbook, see & play with the files.
  5. You can read my comments at the bottom. The comments are in 2 sections – what is good, what can be improved.
  6. Please take my comments on “what can be improved” lightly. I do not mean to offend any of the contestants.
  7. At the bottom of the box, you can find links to the key techniques used. Click on them to learn more.

Thank you

Thank you very much for all the participants in this contest. I have thoroughly enjoyed exploring your work & learned a lot from them. I am sure you had fun creating these too.

So go ahead and enjoy the entries.

PS: We had to disqualify 2-3 entries due to errors in VBA code or inability to open the file.

What is good:
  • Map with details on hover!
  • Lots of details for selected state, include flag of the state, important cities etc.

What can be improved:

  • Some of the tables feel like orphans. Could use titles (and overall summary or title or both)
  • The bar chart on right is just repetition of data in the last of column of table before that. Could have used this space for something else.
  • Feels like too much data. Need to zoom down to 80% to see everything. Consider using form controls or something else to make it easy on eyes.

What is good:
  • Clickable map to drill down to a state
  • Also, slicers to select a state
  • Ability to select year, type of metric (leaving, entering, net gain) to view for the selected state.

What can be improved:

  • Too many scrollbars. Especially both slicer & clickable map serve the same purpose. So, could have removed the slicer.
  • The listing of states & column chart beneath the map are same data. Again this space could have been used for other insights.

  • Focus on top 10 states with-in selection and where people moved using databars & heat maps
  • Good alignment, colors and design.

What can be improved:

  • The heatmap section is somewhat tricky to interpret. May be aggregating data at just region level would have made it easy to read.
  • A little more analysis or explanation on what may have caused migration would make this even better.

What is good:
  • Data & charts (map or table) in one view with ability to toggle fields & years
  • Ability to drill down to a state and visualize inflow or outflow

What can be improved:

  • Picture links create clumsy output. Could have used regular charts, tables and drawing shapes instead.

What is good:
  • Interesting visualization with very tiny cells making up US map, pivot table report filters used for selection
  • Choropleth map with Excel cell grid!
  • Ability to see the map & full data (as pivot report)

What can be improved:

  • The cell grid map, although innovative, does not look perfect. Could have used regular map with a little bit of VBA to color it.
  • Instead of presenting all the data in a table (pivot table), could have used charts. This saves space and helps create a better layout.

What is good:
  • Interesting presentation with ability to choose a variety of perspectives (destination vs. origin, year, entire USA vs. single state) and various measures for doing correlation analysis.
  • Sortable, scrollable chart of state migration flows (with distance from origin!)
  • I love the correlation analysis chart. But selecting right measure to analyze feels tedious. Could have pre-calculated or suggested measures based on state selection.
  • Good, compact layout.

What can be improved:

  • The exploded, grouped pie chart on top feels clumsy and poorly done. Should have used a simple bar chart for top 15 states alone.
  • The VBA code feels buggy and sluggish. Could have checked it for errors and disabled screenupdating.
  • Could have displayed a title & quick summary on top.

  • Analysis by state and state-to-state.
  • 2 color themes – dark & light version.
  • Subtle but powerful use of conditional formatting.

What can be improved:

  • Could have added a top section with overall USA statistics.
  • The analysis is limited to population numbers alone. Could have added additional metrics for richer analysis.

  • Ability to select state & year to understand migration flows. The selection choice feels slick (clickable cells with arrow indicator)
  • Interesting ladder / waterfall chart to explain net gains in population.

What can be improved:

  • The dot plots on top feel cryptic. Could have added help or title to explain that they are migration numbers for all 50 states.
  • The analysis is limited to population numbers alone. Could have added additional metrics for richer analysis.

What is good:
  • An elegant dashboard with subtle colors, interesting shapes and clever layout
  • The clickable map is a very user-friendly way to explore the information.
  • Additional metrics like health, education, wealth, crime, climate etc. help explain migration reasons

What can be improved:

  • Could have added data labels to the bar charts (or to the map) to make it better.
  • The radar chart, although looks pretty, just repeats the data on the shapes. Could have used it for something else.
  • A little more clean-up on dashboard sheet is needed. It shows some calculations and data on the right (which could be hidden)
  • It is not sure for what year the map & bar chart data is displayed. An year selection mechanism can also be added.

What is good:
  • Wow, cell grid used to create a giant map of USA. Then conditional formatting is used to highlight state’s cells based on migration numbers.
  • Ability to select state & year to understand migration flows.
  • Sortable migration trends chart (although in a separate sheet)

What can be improved:

  • While the cell-grid map looks neat, could have used a regular map with VBA for color-coding. This provides better fidelity and forces us to focus on numbers rather than technique.
  • The work books has 3 sheets with dashboards / charts. Contest rules specify one chart or dashboard. Could have integrated all to one page.
  • Could have displayed a title & quick summary on top.

What is good:
  • One more cell grid map, this time at zip code level. Looks interesting although stretched.
  • Ability to select state & year to analyze migration trends
  • Uses pivot tables & additional data.

What can be improved:

  • The map gets stretched and looses clarity due to cell grid approach. Could have used a regular map with VBA.
  • The dashboard (?) has no title, no additional numbers and has minimal legend. Could have added a title, quick summary and few more charts.
  • How the zip code level migration data is obtained is not clear. Could have added instructions & pointed to sources.
  • Requires Data > Refresh once selection is made. Could have automated that with VBA.

  • Ability to expand a chart (and see more data points, although for a poorly executed chart)

What can be improved:

  • The radar plots are a poor choice for depicting top 10 states. Should have used bar / column charts
  • The migration inflow vs. area bubble chart is not easy to understand. Should have added instructions.

What is good:
  • Clear, simple layout with bright colors
  • A map with bubbles depicting migration trends.
  • Ability to analyze by state, year and migration destination

What can be improved:

  • The map / bubble chart is confusing with too many colors. Not sure what the state fill colors represent. The bubble colors are also distracting and useless (as the bubble size is what matters). Could have simplified with either Choropleth map or outline map with bubbles.
  • The bar charts beneath donuts do not start at zero. This creates wrong impression of the data.
  • Summary of total migrants / population chart needs axis labels and ability to sort.

  • Answers questions like which states get most net migrations, contribute for 90% of outflows, inflows
  • Simple layout and easy to use

What can be improved:

  • The map feels hand-drawn. May be a better outline map or shapes would do justice.
  • Labels on charts are difficult to read. Should have used 2 letter state code with horizontal orientation.

What can be improved:

  • The state selection drop-down is clumsy to use. Should have used either active-x or slicer or clickable map to make it user-friendly.
  • The axis labels on state-to-state migration are hard to read. May be 2 letter codes or scrollable chart would do the trick.

  • Slicers for selecting year, type of data and state are well placed and formatted. They look very natural.
  • The map / bubble chart / xy plot is a clever piece of work and explains where people are heading or coming from.
  • Interesting addition of Wikipedia links for state names, so that we can learn more by clicking.

What can be improved:

  • Could have added a title on the top
  • An outline map instead of geo-political map would have made the bubble + XY plot pop out more.

What is good:
  • A simple data table along with bubble chart depicting migration data.
  • Ability to select a state and year for analysis

What can be improved:

  • The map depicts data in the data table. Could have removed one and used the space for something else.
  • Could have added a title and quick summary on top.

What is good:
  • Interesting report. Start with a help screen and can speak the numbers upon selecting a state.
  • A map where you can select a state for further analysis.

What can be improved:

  • The map with radio buttons feels somewhat busy. Could have used a simpler outline map with clickable text-boxes for smooth layout.
  • The charts which show details are on other sheets. The contest rules specify creating one chart or dashboard on a single page.
  • Although built-in help is nice, there is no way to see it again. A help button would have been useful.

What is good:
  • A crisp, simple and number-only dashboard
  • Tests a few hypotheses to explain the migration and explores what may have caused the movement
  • Sections on key findings & unexplained are very useful

What can be improved:

  • The precision of numbers seems excessive given the nature of them (and margin of error). Could have rounded numbers to nearest %, thousand or million as needed.
  • A few charts could have made the insights pop out better.
  • Could have added analysis by a selected state. This makes the dashboard personal and interesting.

What is good:
  • Clear, elegant dashboard with lots of detail, interactivity and analysis
  • Ability to analyze by selecting a single state, multiple states and year.
  • Additional data on unemployment rate, gross state product (GSP), international migration helps understand the migration trends better.
  • Very good colors, alignment, layout and feel.
  • Built-in Help sheet to explain the dashboard

What can be improved:

  • While the dashboard provides powerful analysis and ability to interact, a little bit of conclusions or summary text could have helped in interpreting it better.

What is good:
  • A simple dashboard with ability to explore any given state’s migration trends and understand one state to another flows.
  • Colorful and simple.

What can be improved:

  • The data-validation in cell I2 was incorrectly setup (corrected it in download file)
  • Instead of showing data as-is based on selection, could have added some analysis or exploration on why the migration may have happened.
  • Should have used consistent fonts, alignment & colors and prevented errors thru IFERROR()

What is good:
  • Beautiful colors and layout. Enables quick analysis and exploration.
  • Ability to select a state & year for deep-dive analysis
  • Additional data median income, temperature & crime-rate helps understand migration better.
  • Inflow vs. outflow scatter plot is interesting

What can be improved:

  • The Choropleth map on top feels under-utilized. Could have generated map based on selected state instead of all states.
  • Alignment is a bit off in few places. Also the charts on right could use grid-lines or repeated axis labels for better readability.
  • The file is password protected (VBA code). This is against rules.

  • Ability to explore migration trends based on state, year, various metrics (crime rate, per-capita income, unemployment rate, median home value, median rent, % of unmarried population etc.)
  • Ability to compare up to 4 states on various metrics to understand reasons behind migration.

What can be improved:

  • The dashboard is too long. Could have reduced the map size and arranged everything on one screen / page.
  • Reading the dashboard is tricky due to its length. A help sheet is needed.

What is good:
  • Unique design and interesting choice of colors & layout
  • Ability to select a state by clicking on cells with state 2 letter codes.
  • The neighbor state statistics is insightful. It shows consistent movement of people with-in neighboring states.
  • Interesting facts about the state.

What can be improved:

  • The home screen is drab and has no insights. Could have used it for overall summary and quick insights on migration trends.
  • The pie charts are a poor way to depict data like this. Should have used column or bar charts.
  • Year selection feels tricky. Should have used a more obvious method.

What is good:
  • Very insightful & interesting dashboard
  • Good mix of charts, observations, fun facts and analysis.
  • Ability to select a state for in-depth analysis.
  • Pareto analysis to understand migration of a selected state.

What can be improved:

  • The pareto analysis feels forced. It would have been better to test whether a pareto behavior is exhibited by the data before going this route.
  • Some place the alignment, font sizes, border thicknesses and colors are a bit off.
  • Could have used an Active-X drop down for state selection.

What is good:
  • Interesting dashboard with ability to compare 2 states for given time period on various parameters
  • Simple & elegant design

What can be improved:

  • The controls for date range selection feel un-necessary as we have only 3 years of data. The other controls should have been intergraded in to the dashboard to make it compact.

What can be improved:

  • The map, 50 state table at the bottom & top 5 migration states on top right all depict same data. Could have removed one of them and used the space for other types of analysis.
  • Picture links make the “Where are they coming from” section a bit stretched. Could have used textboxes or regular cells.

What is good:
  • A detailed dashboard to explore migration from one state to another
  • Analysis by yearly trends, average distance from selected state. Also you can explore GDP, personal income and employment for the selected state.

What can be improved:

  • Poor choice of charts & colors. The 3d pie charts, in-consistent colors and layout makes it tricky to gain insights from this. Could have used simple bar charts and subtle colors.
  • Lots of white space and redundant charts make it hard to understand key points. Should have reduced the charts and made them in to a tight layout.

  1. Rudra Sharma says:

    I liked the dashboard of Roberto Mensa.

  2. Krishna Teja says:

    Awesome dashboards
    Love to see what all techniques are used.
    Happy to be a part of this

  3. First of all, thanks Chandoo and your team! this is a good opportunity to showcase our work to a large audience.
    Really a great work of all the contest participants! … I just had a look but I’ve seen a lot of interesting and brilliant ideas … I’m happy because there are many things that I can learn … I think it will be hard to find a winner … so good luck to all!

  4. Sanmaya Kumar Mishra says:

    I Liked the Dashboard of Vikram Krishnamurthy, as it has detailed Analysis of Migration. from one states to other states due to diffrent factors.

  5. Darin Myers says:

    My favorite was the Migration Dashboard by Matthew Waechter. I really liked the selection mechanism, the color scheme was clean, subtle, and useful, and the proportionally sized arrows on the map were a nice graphical touch.

    • @Darin
      I agree with you, the dashboard by Matthew is one of my favorites too, it is the first that I downloaded … I just want to add that there is no direct proportionality between the thickness of the arrows and the data or rather the thickness of the arrows is fixed. This does not mean that it would have been better if there had been proportionality but is just a clarification.

  6. Dan Laemont says:

    Now these entries really presented a challenge in determining the best, VERY difficult to say the least.

    I ended up liking Newman and Mensa entries the best. Very clear presentations of a mountain of data. Really well done, each with its own very clever attribute.

    Thank you!!

  7. Abby says:

    I really loved getting to see all of the ideas and different layouts. Thank you so much!

  8. ahhhmed says:

    Very interesting indeed.

    Could you do the same with the book ( Around the world in 80 Days), to illustrate the journey and incidents of Mr Fogg around the world?

    I wish you could.

    Joey Cherdarchuk, Mark Weber and David Hoppe are my favourites about the desgin. Very aesthetic and very nice !
    Congratulations to everybody for this beautiful work.

    Great dashboards. It is interesting to see how many different interpretations come to life from a data set. The different colors, the presentations, the use of Excel features and functionality etc… The beauty of the human mind

  11. Sarah says:

    My favorite was the one done by Mark Weber. All of these gave me some great ideas of what to do and pitfalls to watch out for. I’ll be incorporating some of these in my future dashboards.

  20. Asif says:

    For an interactive Dashboard (without MAP view) my vote is for “Kyle Tan” and for Map specific I will chose “Jean-MarcVoyer” Dashboard.
    Gratitude to all those who 49 masters who contributed??

  21. KrishnaKumar says:

    Hi Chandoo,

    Thanks for your feedback. Surely, will take your inputs & improve myself in next assignments.

    With respect to your feedback.

    Chandoo: Regional migration column chart is tricky to read. Could have used a map or diagram for better effect.

    : Yes. I could try some other chart.

    Chandoo: Too long. Requires 2 scrolls to see the full dashboard. Instead could have shrunk or removed a few charts to create a compact report.

    : Agree. but try to give as much as possible information hence little long. May be I could think to give page deviation button to set each chart in one view instead of scrolling thru mouse.

    Cheers!!!!!!

  22. ganesh says:

    Super Awesome !!
    love to drill down into each of the dashboard and lot of learning can we taken away from this dashboard.

    Thanks Chandoo for sharing the dashboards.

    THE BAZAAR

    Apart from the individual brilliance of the people who has created these dash boards, the greatness is in this act of sharing to public. This may be the story of “Cathedral vs. Bazaar” of Excel.

    For normal people like me, just trying to replicate these shall make me to master of the dashboards. Chandoo may needs to address cannibalism of this exercise with his classes ;)

    I wish the contestants for their much coveted no# spot.

  30. Niyaz says:

    Hi All,

    Looking at all the dashboards, it just makes me want to create another dashboard taking all the awesome part of each dashboard. This is my first time in a competition. More than considering it as a competition, this really helps me as a knowledge sharing/getting ideas thing. My personal fav would be Mark Weber and Roberto Mensa… not considering mine. Just kidding :)

  31. Heena says:

    Hi All,

    I like the dashboard prepared by Aditya Canay. Easy & Simple to understand. has used subtle colors.

    For all other participants…..Great Job!

    Why many dashboard does not work in 64bit system, like the dashboard of ArnaudDuigou ?

    • Hui... says:

      @Toguko

      The dashboard by Arnaud Duigou uses some VBA which is incompatible with Excel 64 bit versions

      To Fix
      Open the file
      Goto VBA, Alt F11
      select the Preparation_Macros Code Module
      Change the line:
      Private Declare Function GetCursorPos Lib “user32″ (lpPoint As POINTAPI) As Long
      To:
      Private Declare PTRSAFE Function GetCursorPos Lib “user32″ (lpPoint As POINTAPI) As Long

      Now save the file as a *.xlsm file type and
      Reopen it

  47. Peter Urbani says:

    Hi Chandoo
