INFO VISUALIZATION: You've probably heard that poverty in America is on the rise, as has been widely reported in the last few days. But if you want a bit more depth, check out the actual report over at the Census Bureau. The data is clear, the visualizations are crisp and the report is very user friendly overall.
I thought this graph was particularly interesting. They say Americans vote their wallets. I've never completely bought that argument, but if you do, look at the poverty level between '89 and '93 and again from '01 to present. Pretty similar eh? Where's Ross Perot when you need him?
