Visualising the rise of the use of mobile phones


Another #TidyTuesday contribution, reminiscing about the old Nokias.


November 12, 2020

My #TidyTuesday contribution for this week: the rise of the use of mobile phones.

{fig-alt: Graph entitled “The Rise of the Information Wave”. It charts the increase in mean number of mobile phones per person per country, with lines fitted to each continent. The confidence intervals around the lines give them a futuristic neon glow, and an asterisk in the shape of the old Nokia lock key highlight Montenegro, whch had peak phones per person in Europe in 2009.}

I piped the data straight into ggplot() and enjoyed the satisfaction of having very little in my environment as a result. See the code for yourself!
