NSCB Sexy Stats Version 2

This was a revised version of my previous post about the NSCB article. With the suggestion from Tal Galili, below were the new pie charts and the R codes to produce these plots by directly scrapping the data from the webpage using XML and RColorBrewer pagkage.

Unemployment by Age Group

Unemployment by Gender

Unemployment by Civil Status

Unemployment by Educational Level

NSCB Sexy Statistics (Unemployment)


Recently, my friend posted on her Facebook account about the article published by the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB) about poverty and unemployment in the country.  Looking at the report I saw a lot of tables, so I thought why not use R to make some graphs out of these tables (with some inspiration from the mazmascience).


Percent Unemployed Per Age Group




Percent Unemployed by Sex Group



 Percent Unemployed by Civil Status
