Child Diversity in PA School Districts

This visualization, created as a collaboration with our affiliate, Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children, visualizes the changing racial and ethnic composition of Pennsylvania children by school district. The accompanying report highlights statewide trends and includes information on how to use the visualization.

Image of Neighboring Viz

Neighboring Municipalities and Commuting Flows

This interactive visualization uses data at the municipal level from the American Community Survey to show patterns in the place of residence and place of work for Pennsylvanians. This visualization includes four categories which expand our understanding of commuter flows by considering those who work (or do not work) in a municipality that neighbors the municipality in which they live.
