Data Visualization of the Forbes Billionaire List 2014
An interactive data visualization of the world's 500 richest billionaires as listed by Forbes in 2014. Demo at: http://benjamindupreez.com/billionaires.html
The dataset used for this visualization comes from the following study by Caroline Freund and Sarah Oliver: https://piie.com/publications/working-papers/origins-superrich-billionaire-characteristics-database?ResearchID=2917. The data is available at the link as an Excel spreadsheet, which I converted to JSON for the purposes of this project. This JSON file is hosted online using Github pages, but I also included it in the repository for easy reference.
