Cultural Revolution Deaths Map

May 1, 2019

I recently found a county-level dataset of Cultural Revolution deaths by Professor Andrew G. Walder at Stanford University. I thought some geographical data visualization of the data would be cool before delving into analysis, and here's the result, with deaths normalized by county population. It seems that the Guangxi and Northeast regions had the most deaths.
