2017 marks our second year producing the "Notable Deaths" infographic timeline. I'd like to say we could draw some solid data-driven conclusions now that we have two graphics to compare, but there's so much subjectivity in this process that it makes drawing actual scientifically valid assertions impossible. As we wrote in last year's post:
Topics: Infographics, Information Graphics, Celebrities, Noteworthy deaths, Glen Campbell, Charles Manson, Jerry Lewis, Tom Petty, Hugh Hefner, Mary Tyler Moore, Gregg Allman, Adam West, Chuck Berry, Fats Domino
We're seeing lots of people on social media exasperated about how terrible a year 2016 has been. I'm not sure how true that is compared to other years, but clearly some people can't wait for 2016 to end and for 2017 to begin. Maybe that's due to the hotly contested election season or to the seemingly large number of celebrities and other noteworthy people who died in 2016.
