This KSS talk is presented by Rob Black, Chair of the IFoA’s Data Visualisation working party

Data Visualisation helps to communicate information clearly and effectively through graphical means.  This talk will showcase some visualisations that the working party has found useful for common actuarial situations.  The working party’s approach has been to outline problems (eg, viewing an analysis of change) and give suggested solutions (eg, use a waterfall chart because…).  Commentary and critique of each problem-solution is given along with the how-to practical implementation.  All the examples presented in the talk are viewable on a publicly available blog, https://dataviz-wp.blogspot.com, that the working party are maintaining.
