The Data On A New Dad


Using a series of charts, Nathan Yau examines the impact his son’s birth has had on his life over the past six months:

I started with location, which I began to collect mid-2012. The top portion shows location before my son was born, and below shows after. I work from home, so I tend not to drive much to begin with, but as you’d expect, I don’t travel too far from home these days.

There is of course the caveat that the pre-baby portion covers a longer timespan, so maybe it’s not a completely fair comparison. I can tell you though that the farthest trip I’ve gone on with my son is about 50 miles.

The main point: I spend my time very differently now.
