Also the swap-over between Bicester North (huge drop) and Village (significant gain)

And when you add them up, there's an overall 22% gain

Interesting graphic of the numbers - on a map, size by value and colour by ticket type

That's a very interesting graphic!

In a similar spirit - I've been trying to teach myself more about data visualisation, and thought I could usefully use the latest ORR data as a test case. I've put together this clickable map:

http://empslocal.ex.ac.uk/people/staff/tej202/stations.htm

which aims to summarise annual percentage rates of growth at UK stations since 2005 (there's a break in the data in 2004, and it looks as if the data collection methodology changed then anyway - see KGX!).

Some interesting clusters of dark blue (strong growth) stand out.

I'd welcome suggestions for how to improve the visualisation.

And that is a hugely interesting graphic too!!

There is indeed a missing year of data

I would love (additionally) to see the same graphic for the last six years or so - giving more current trends.  Just a year or two's data would be subject to the vagaries of individual years which to some extent is evened out by a longer period.

It's very noticeable that a handful of services have really struggled, and that many more have grown wonderfully!

That's a very good point, grahame - many thanks for the suggestion.

I have split the data to give two maps, a 'long term' one for the period 2005 - 2017 (as before) and a 'recent trend' one for the shorter period 2012 - 2017:

http://empslocal.ex.ac.uk/people/staff/tej202/stations.htm

It is striking how much more orange and red there is on the 'recent' map as growth rates have (generally) slowed across the country. Melksham's stunning recent growth is an honourable exception to this pattern, of course!
