I have decided to change the subject of the second part of my next assignment. Where before I chose Where Have I Been and When? I have now chosen What Is The Fattest Country? I changed subjects because after researching info graphics and data, I think I will produce a better understanding infographic of the fattest country. I will be able to visually compare obesity statistics for a number of countries but first I need to research what is the fattest country and what countries came close.
According to The Huffington Post, America is no longer the fattest country as of 2014. The newest fattest nation is in fact Kuwait. It is an Arab country in Western Asia, situated north of Eastern Arabia at the tip of the Persian Gulf, sharing borders with Iraq and Saudi Arabia.
Last year, it was Mexico who came in weighing the fattest country: With a 32.8 percent adult obesity rate, Mexico just inches past the 31.8 percent obesity rate in the United States, according to a study released last month by the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization.

Now I have some data for my infograph, the next aspect I need to look at will be the design layout. Read my next post on this topic where I will be discussing different layouts for my A2 poster on the fattest country.
