Recreating a Table by The Economist with Reactable

Abstract: This table is a recreation of a table by the Economist which presents COVID-19 'excess deaths' across countries. In the blog post, I outline step by step how to build the table, using {reactable}, from step zero to completion. The tutorial is unique in that it introduces some intricacies of table design that many beginners may not think about, such as fonts and colors (by using CSS). It incorporates advanced methods that are made easy due to {reactable}, such as the incorporation of bar charts.
