If you go to the original article:

and hover over the slice, you'll see it's "broken heart"

Look on the bright side though, my opinion of pie charts was not biased by your article on them! It was clear I hated them before you told me to hate them. Feeling like a hipster today...

Call for Articles

Data Visualization In Actuarial Practice
Overview
Often actuaries are searching for the latest information to identify risk trends, measure risk impact, and develop mitigation strategies. Increasingly, the sources being found are data sets requiring the application of complex investigative methods in obtaining results. Not only are actuaries thinking about the best method to produce meaningful results, but also how to translate the analysis and outcome into summaries that are understandable to business leaders, regulators, and other stakeholders.

The SOA's Research Executive Committee, is issuing a call for articles to highlight the increasing use of data visualization techniques in utilizing data in actuarial practice.

Statement of Topic

Describe the application of existing techniques or new innovations that were used in making a data set meaningful and comprehensible to a broad audience. What are the considerations in determining the appropriate data visualization strategy for a particular data set? How are different data visualization methods/techniques/platforms evaluated so that the best data visualization is utilized for the data being presented? How is the data visualization validated? What data visualization has worked and why? What data visualization has not worked and why? What issues were encountered in implementing data visualization and how were they addressed (e.g. color blindness)?

Content

The Research Executive Committee is issuing this call for articles to demonstrate how actuaries are using data visualization in practice and produce an important reference document for those wanting to learn more about this growing area. In addition, as a result of this effort, a multimedia presentation will be produced for the use, education and benefit of all SOA members and other interested parties. Articles must adhere to the following:

Show effective use of data visualization in presenting analysis results of data sets in a current or emerging actuarial practice area, such as:
Life insurance, annuity, or other long term liability insurance product
Health Insurance
General Insurance
Pension / Retirement
Financial Reporting
Investments
Finance
Risk Management
Operational / Administrative Management decisions
Reinsurance

Describe in approximately 800 - 1,200 words the issue that was studied, the data that was used, considerations encountered in formulating the data visualizations strategy, factors impacting data visualization, issues encountered in strategy implementation, lessons learned, conclusions reached and business outcomes.

Utilize 2 - 4 visual displays (such as charts, graphs, or descriptive graphics) to further the description of the methods used, analysis performed or conclusions reached.
Procedure for Submission of Articles

One sentence intent by April 15

Please submit a brief acknowledgement of your intent to submit an article by Friday, April 15, 2016. Final submissions are requested via e-mail by Friday, April 29, 2016. Intents and final submissions should be e-mailed to:
Jan Schuh
Sr. Research Administrator
email: jschuh@soa.org
