Drug Harms

This is my redesign of this famous stacked bar chart published on The Lancet. The data is exactly the same: for each drug I separated the values of the measurements (the stacked bars) and, comparing to the other drugs, I created a matrix. All matrices together make a small multiples of heatmaps. Hover over the labels to get the description of the drug (rows) and the criteria (columns) in the comparison, and over each box to get a precise description. The boxes are coloured using a colour-blind safe Brewer palette: the greener the box the less harm the drug does, the purpler the box the more harm it does (compared to the other drug).
