A few weeks ago, we posted the winner of the second Google/Guardian Datastore data visualization competition. For the next few Wednesdays, we'll share other competition entries here. Today's featured entry, "Foreign aid, corruption and internet use," is an interactive chart created by Nikhil Sonnad.
The chart below shows OECD data on the total amount given -- since 1960 -- to every aid recipient country. Two other data points underlie the simple bar graph: the 2011 Corruption Perceptions Index produced by Transparency International, and rates of internet use per 100 people, provided by the World Bank (for 2011 or the bank's most recent figures). You can use the menu below to manipulate how these data points affect the order and coloring of the chart.
