We all love to buy lottery tickets and dream about how we’re going to spend our million dollar jackpot, even though our chance of winning is one in millions. And we don’t realize that our chances of winning a prize for completing a survey are often as good as 1 in 500 (that’s a survey plug!). It’s hard to visualize what those numbers mean. You really need a solid infographic to get a feel for it.
And, with all the infographic bashing I’ve been doing lately, perhaps it’s about time I share one that I think is actually good. The reason I like this one is that the visuals are essential for helping the reader understand the information being shared. They aren’t just pretty pictures that duplicate the text. There’s no need to try to imagine what millions or thousands mean. It’s right before your eyes.
