MIT and Deloitte have built a powerful new data visualization engine for U.S. public data. It is available for use at the “Data USA” website.
Through advanced data analytics and visualization, the engine helps users “understand and visualize the critical issues facing the United States in areas like jobs, skills and education across industry and geography. And, to use this knowledge to inform decision making among executives, policymakers and citizens.”
This open platform provides an opportunity for easy, but deep dives into data about locations, industries, occupations, health care, and many other issues. Anybody who has ever used U.S. government data to inform decision-making will find this platform a massive improvement.
