It is a good tool for demonstrating why graphs can be more engaging than tables when presenting data. When I use this in class, I compare the NameVoyager data display to more traditionally presented data from the the Social Security Agency. Additionally, I teach in a computer lab, so my students were able to search for their own names, which makes the example more self relevant.
