This infographic was submitted to us by ADT Choose Home Security, who also provided this description:
In the U.S. a home burglary occurs every 14.6 seconds. It’s an alarming number, especially around the holiday season– the perfect time for a burglar to strike.
Burglars will often target: cash, jewelry, laptops, guns, digital cameras, small electronics (iPods, GPS, PDA’s MP3’s and CD’s). But at ADT Choose Home Security, we’ll give you a special gift: a peace of mind.
It’s time to secure those items on a burglar’s wish list and keep them safely wrapped up under the tree.
This graphic features bold colors and startling statistics! It makes a fairly quick guide for viewers to get the facts on holiday burglaries.
Unfortunately, none of the data here is visualized. Every stat on the left panel of the design could be shown with a pie chart, bar graph, pictogram, or other creative form of data visualization. But without that, the viewer has to read to get all of the information. Even corresponding icons would help, since all of the data points just point to the family through the keyhole rather than corresponding to anything in particular on the illustration.
It’s important for infographics to visualize information whenever possible! As such, I’d have to give this design a C — the illustrations are nice and the information is useful, but aside from the illustration of the burglar’s wishlist with its icons, there aren’t any other elements of an infographic here.0
