How the UK Votes at the UN

How the UK Votes Compared to Others - Number of Votes

For #TidyTuesday 2021.3.23: UN Voting, I created this chart, showing how the UK votes differently to the 10 ‘most powerful’ countries listed by US News’ Power Rankings.

Each circular chart compares the UK’s voting to others, based on the number of votes for a given topic.

The chart was created with R using ggplot. Voting data is taken from Harvard’s Dataverse via the {unvotes} R package. Colours taken from the Wes Anderson Darjeeling palette.

I like how each chart is reminiscent of the UN emblem.
