Some great chart and tables design in this book:
Letting the Argintine bar go outside the chart is great, and hard to do in Office charts(?)
What I like here is using the dots to go between the row name and the rest of the columns. It fills that whitespace nicely and, I guess, makes it more readable so don’t lose track of the row as you go right.
I would have wanted to put a grid on all of this, but it looks so much better without one.
