Ethnicity in Singapore: A Visualization using D3.js

Screen-shot of SG Ethnicity VisualizationI’ve been playing around with D3.js the past few weeks and just completed a first-cut visualization of Singapore’s ethnic demographic has changed from 2000 to 2010. Feedback is welcome, particularly on what works and what doesn’t (visually). Some context: the idea for this explorative tool came up after a few conversations with locals about the extent of ethnic integration. Several voiced opinions left me with questions about the extent of racial discrimination in Singaporean society. Although the visualization doesn’t address this question, it was a step towards a better understanding Singapore’s ethnic demography. Feel free to explore the visualization, and you can learn more at Singstats.
