Tortilla Feliz Catalana

A decomposed tortilla represents the state of well-being in Spain. Based on data from the Better Life Index, each component of these layered tortillas represents a topic: community = peppers, life satisfaction = asparagus, jobs = potatoes, and education = onions. One half of the “tortilla tower” represents Spain’s scores in these topics, while the other half reveals what people actually find important (based on the Better Life Index responses). The difference between these two statistics — for instance, people find education really important, but Spain does not fare that well in this area — becomes apparent in the different taste of the two tortillas.
