In 2021, five-thirty visual reporters told stories of epidemics, political complexities, and the world of sports. We fought to make our work more accessible and to sharpen our storytelling Through all of this, we keep it weird. Now we continue our tradition of celebrating the best – and worst – charts of the year Here are some of our favorites, grouped by topic but not in any specific order. If you want more context for these (weird and wonderful) charts, don’t be shy! You can read the story by clicking on any one of them where they originally ran.
And, last but not least, check out this calendar with the results of our debate about when each season will begin.
Have you enjoyed this long list of weird charts? So boy, do we have archive content for you! See our listings from 2020, 2019, 2018, 2016, 2015 and 2014.
