Nightingale's Rose

Nightingale's coxcombs
Florence Nightingale kept meticulous records of the large number of deaths due to poor sanitary conditions compared to the number of deaths due to fighting during the Crimean War. Following the war she produced powerful graphs – now often known as 'roses' or 'coxcombs' – to represent this data. We have animated Nightingale's Roses, and included a bar chart of the same data for comparison.
