Creating a bump chart : Plotting rankings trends in time-series data

Bump chart (plotting by rankings) enables exploration of how record rankings change over time. 

This chart is a very powerful method to move beyond individual values, and see how records (such as countries) compare to each other over time, enriching your understanding and analysis of data. For example, you can see how rankings of countries in a specific region change over time.
