Sankey Diagrams: An Underrated Gem of Data Visualization
Supercharge your data analysis.
Many tabular data analysis tasks can be interpreted as a flow between the source and a target.
Instead of manually analyzing tabular data, try to represent them as Sankey diagrams.

1) It will be time-consuming
2) You may miss out on a few insights
