The diversity of career paths of oscar winners

The imdb dataset is rich of interesting data to play with. This time I had a look at the diversity of career paths of actors and actresses.

Tv Shows

I learned about Simpson-Index that scientists use to measure diversity in data sets. It was quiet interesting to compare the visual output with that single index. The index alone is quiet handy to find actors/actresses or sort them by diversity. The visualisation on the other side show more about pattern and how people evolved through the years.
