Data visualization tools provide an effective, innovative method to present data in easy to understand and visually appealing ways.
This webinar, hosted by the National Research Center on Hispanic Children and Families, is designed for those interested in learning various approaches to presenting data and enhancing the accessibility of their findings.
Data visualization experts from NORC at the University of Chicago will present on best practices for creating graphics from survey and administrative data. They will discuss graphic tools available to a variety of users, such as Excel, Tableau, R, ArcGIS, Q GIS, and MapInfo Professional, among others.
Illustrative examples will depict: (1) readily available data (e.g., American Community Survey); (2) a range of visualizations from basic (e.g., bar charts) to more complex options (e.g., animated maps); and (3) geographic distributions of Hispanic children and families in Chicago from 2012 to 2017.
Attendees also will have access to a supplementary handout listing various available resources that will enable them to build upon the skills learned and explore new approaches to creating data visualizations to answer their own research questions.
