Data Visualization for Social Policy

The Malcolm Wiener Center at the Harvard Kennedy School has launched the Social Policy Lab to take a data-driven approach for tackling the largest social issues of our time.

We focus on mass incarceration, disparities in higher education, US regional divides, and everything in between. We use a combination of data visualizations and storytelling to help policymakers, thinktanks, journalists, and academics as they seek to improve the growing inequalities that we are seeing in the world.
