It’s been a tough year.
Donuts might help!
They’re probably one of the most visually appealing foods.
They are appreciated across the globe.
And surprisingly, more connected to data than you might think.
Here’s a quick summary of what is going on with data and donuts these days:
The donut market is on the rise!
According to projections from Technavio Research, this market would have been expected to see growth anyways, but COVID-19 has given an extra boost – as consumers have increased their purchases of snacks and “comfort foods.” Now could be the time to buy into donuts!
Bicycle culture = donut culture?

However, if you don’t hold any strong opinions about charts (donut or otherwise) and are just interested in the variety of ways that data can be presented through visualizations, the Data Viz Project put together by the Danish company Ferdio provides an excellent summary of the donut chart, and gives some great visual examples of how it has been used. This site also allows you to hone in on the best visual representation for your data – sorting through a variety of different charts, graphs, diagrams, and plots by shape, input type, functionality, etc.
We here at Dataspace are proudly pro-donut (of the baked good variety.. as far as I am aware we do not have a company policy about donut charts), and have sampled many a fine beignet, berliner, bismarck, and bun. We are definitely spoiled by the availability of great donuts (and bike trails to ride to said donuts) here in Michigan.
We’ll be posting some of our favorite donuts in the comments of our post on LinkedIn. Please share your donut data as well! What’s your favorite local bakery? The most unique donut you have encountered? Best off-the beaten path donuts?? Best donut chart about donuts??? A donut chart about writing about donut charts?
Thanks for joining us in our efforts to make this year just a little bit better, one donut at a time!
