Infographic: Nobel Prizes and Laureates, 1901 — 2012

Visualized for each laureate are prize category, year the prize was awarded, and the age of the recipient at the time.  Visualized for each category are grade level, principal academic affiliations, and principal hometown of the laureates.

How to read it

Each dot represents a Nobel laureate, each recipient is positioned according to the year the prize was awarded (x-axis) and age of the person at the time of the award (y-axis).
