I am currently working in the definition of the profiles of patients of a specific disease. I have applied an unsupervised clustering technique to my dataset obtaining different patient profiles for different time periods. What I get is different risk level patient profiles (their median age, comorbidities, gender...) for 4 different periods (let's say 1970-1980, 1980-1990, 1990-2000 and 2000-2010). These clusters relate very well to the percentage of death in each of the clusters, this is the reason why I call them risk level clusters.
The thing is I want to show this information in a figure, which could have an x axis of time and a y axis of risk, and show an evolution of these clusters (because the profiles of the risk people have changed with time) perhaps with icons and with some info next to them for each period and risk level. Do you think this is a nice way to explain my results? Is there a more explanatory way of showing them?
I have tried to find examples on the internet but I find nothing. I don't know if this is the right place to ask but I haven't found any forum on data visualization.
Thank you in advance.
