Booze space – article on Significance website

Happy new year everybody! Just before Christmas I wrote an article for Significance which is on their website here. This took the HMRC booze data that Andrew McCulloch had previously analysed as time series, and turned them into an animation (and the R code to make it is here). Apart from the pretty pictures, an interesting angle is the difference between litres of booze (which is what the HMRC count in order to levy the tax) and the units of alcohol – particularly at Christmas, when we as a nation drink a lot of wine.
