Visualizing the Swedes in the Paradise Papers

Swedish news outlet SVT Nyheter has created a data visualization illustrating the involvement of 1,180 Swedes it identified in the Paradise Papers, the 13.4 million recently leaked documents detailing how law firm Appleby helped 120,000 people and companies store money offshore. Though storing money offshore is not necessarily illegal, this tactic is commonly used to cover for illicit financial activity such as tax evasion. The visualization breaks down the age and gender of the Swedes SVT Nyheter identified, their reported incomes, which Sweden makes publicly available, and their involvement with companies incorporated in Malta, which has notoriously lax financial disclosure laws.

Take a look.
