Compare life expectancy across countries and genders with ggplot2.
Do women live longer than men? How long? Does it happen everywhere?
Is life expectancy increasing? Everywhere?
Which is the country with the lowest life expectancy?
Which is the one with the highest? In this Project, you will answer all these
questions by manipulating and visualizing United Nations life expectancy data using
ggplot2. We recommend that
you have completed Introduction to the Tidyverse and Chapter 2 of Cleaning Data in R before
starting this Project.
The dataset can be found here and contains the average life expectancies of men and women by country (in years). It covers four periods: 1985-1990, 1990-1995, 1995-2000, and 2000-2005.
