This infographic presents epidemiology data from the WHO on the increased incidence of thyroid cancer among children after the nuclear disaster in Chernobyl. It depicts thyroid cancer incidence at regular time intervals from 1982 (to give a control value pre-1986) to 2005 and depicts incidence in relation to radiation dosage (in Gy absorbed by the thyroid), age at time of exposure (separated into four age groups), gender, and the population of each age group. Parsons the New School for Design professor Julia Wargaski chose this, and another piece of mine, as examples of stellar work from her class to be featured on the Parsons blog.
