Urban Institute's year in digital and data storytelling

December 30, 2014

Urban Institute researchers generate a lot of data, and data, in our minds, are gateways to stories about people, places, and policies. In terms of data, 2014 has been a very busy year at Urban, and we continued to experiment with the way we tell stories with the data our researchers produce.

Here is a look at our favorite interactive, data visualization, and video-based projects of 2014:
