Bullet Charts

Amy Esselman is number one with a bullet:

Our November challenge was inspired by a recent workshop question about bullet graphs. We invited the community to find some data of interest and build their own bullet graph. More than three dozen members tackled this less familiar chart type in a variety of tools, including Excel, Tableau, Python, Illustrator, Datawrapper, PowerBI, and R.

For many challenge participants, this was their first attempt at creating a bullet graph. They discovered, as you may find yourself, that even though bullet graphs are not a typical chart type, they can be powerful in the right situation.
