Coronavirus Lockdown Data Viz
A data visualisation exploring the relationship between different variables, documented daily throughout the UK’s first national lockdown as a result of COVID-19. All data points documented were from April 1st 2020 to June 30th 2020, totalling 91 days. The first 75 of these days were spent in solitude living in a second floor flat with no outdoor space, the final 15 days were spent in a house with 3 housemates and a garden.
The data points recorded include a variety of topics, from number of people interacted with daily (online or in person), to tracking outdoor exercise. The main focus of data collection being to explore how these factors affect mental wellbeing.
The data visualisation has been split into three posters for the months of April, May and June 2020, with a linear graph on each showing all three months for a wider view and comparison.
*Please note that the number of people seen increased due to volunteer work at the food bank and encountering others on daily exercise excursions. All interactions were socially distanced and within the 2m Government guidelines.
