Data Driven Animation

Introduction For this project, I will create a data driven animation to tell the story about the rise and fall of autocratic ruling parties around the world from 1940-2015. The dataset has been created by Michael K. Miller, an Associate Professor of Political Science and International Affairs from George Washington University. You can find more about the data here. # Load Libraries library(tidyverse) library(ggmap) library(maps) library(ggthemes) library(gganimate) library(viridis) Data Preparation The Autocratic Ruling Parties Dataset (ARPD) includes a range of variables for all autocratic ruling parties in the world from 1940-2015.
