Graphics provide an excellent approach for exploring data and are essential for presenting results. Although graphics have been used extensively in statistics for a long time. Data visualization is the practice of translating information into a visual context. The importance of Data visualization comes for many reasons; It provides a quick and effective way to communicate information in a universal manner using visual information, makes data more memorable for users, the ability to absorb information quickly, improves insights, makes faster decisions, and many more.
This research paper is tending to reformulate the results of the Egyptian International Household Migration Survey (EHIMS) using interactive dashboard data visualization instead of using traditional graphs currently used in official publications to emphasize the differences and power of interactive dashboards in displaying data insights more effectively and send clearly messages to data users, decision-makers and public opinion.
The paper examines the power of interactive dashboard tools such as Power BI and Excel dashboards to visualize survey results using different shapes and graphics to settle on the best way of presentation. Discussing the most effective visualization techniques (e.g., Pie Chart, Bar Chart, Histogram, Gantt Chart, … etc.) that would enhance the knowledge of migration data and its importance. Also discusses how to clarify correct concepts of migration and reduce misinformation about migration and migrants. In addition, the paper discusses how to use data visualization to improve effective data communication.
