If you read data science articles, you may have already stumbled upon FiveThirtyEight’s content. Naturally, you were impressed by their awesome visualizations. You wanted to make your own awesome visualizations and so asked Quora and Reddit how to do it. You received some answers, but they were rather vague. You still can’t get the graphs done yourself. In this post, we’ll help you. Using Python’s matplotlib and pandas, we’ll see that it’s rather easy to replicate the core parts of any FiveThirtyEight (FTE) visualization.

We’ll start here:

And, at the end of the tutorial, arrive here:

To follow along, you’ll need at least some basic knowledge of Python. If you know what’s the difference between methods and attributes, then you’re good to go.</p>


If you're into Python and graphs, this is what you want.

You might have already observed that there’s a built-in style called fivethirtyeight. Let’s use this style, and see where that leads. For that, we’ll use the aptly named use() function from the same matplotlib.style module (which we imported under the name style). Then we’ll generate our graph using the same code as earlier.
