How To... Draw and Format a Basic Bubble Chart in Excel 2010 @YouTube

It's been quite a few weeks since I created a video for my YouTube Channel - my latest one today is about drawing and editing a bubble chart in Excel. This is a cool way to display three variables in one chart, a task that is difficult to complete though bubble charts offer a great solution. For this video (created using Snagit) I used data from The World Factbook - I extracted data for Birth Rate, Life Expectancy, and GDP from five countries. This can be displayed on a so-called bubble chart that will look great in presentations. In this video I also experimented with adding graphics of flags to represent the five countries in order to increase the "coolness" factor of this type of chart. On playing this video back I do notice that I talk a lot faster than usual compared to other videos - especially at the beginning!

See what you think...
