Deadliest Animals

This visualization is one I came across when working on Project 3. My piece was on intimate partner violence and I was looking for ways to map or visualize 1) how frequently women are killed by men they know, especially intimate partners and 2) how proportionally that makes intimate partners so much more dangerous to women than any other person they encounter.

This visualization works with that proportional aspect with deadliest animals. I can’t decide if seeing human or mosquito was more off-putting, but either way the visualization has a striking effect.
