Visual Analysis of Spanish Male Mortality

Snapshots of modern mathematics from Oberwolfach

Visual Analysis of Spanish Male Mortality

Statistical visualization uses graphical methods to gain insights from data. Here we show how a technique called principal component analysis is used to analyze mortality in Spain over about the last hundred years. This data decomposition both reflects expected historical events and reveals some perhaps less expected trends in mortality over the years.
