Dashboard: College Rank vs. Tuition

Dashboard: College Rank vs. Tuition

 Take a look at this Bime dashboard comparing data about college rankings and tuition costs.

The first visualization  shows scores for all colleges where tuition is 20,000USD or less. The trend lines show that even though there is a large gap between the top and the bottom college in terms of score, there is not a huge discrepancy when it comes to tuition fees. This could be useful if, for example, you wanted to choose the best college possible with a tuition budget of 20,000USD.

The second,  the line chart, displays fall 2009 acceptance rate vs. score per college. You can see that generally, as score increases, the rate of acceptance decreases.

The third chart, demonstrates each college’s ‘score’ (on a scale from 1-100, 100 being the highest score attainable) (red) against the cost of tuition at that college (yellow). We used the new dual axis feature to display both measures but on different axes. Use the zoomchart below the main chart to examine points more closely in the interactive version - https://newsletter.bimeapp.com/players/dashboard/college_rank_vs_tuition
