Visualizing gender and race inequality in newsrooms

Our latest project in the collaboration with Google News Lab —read about it here and see all projects here— is an exploration of gender and race in U.S news publications. It was designed by Polygraph based on data from the American Society of News Editors (ASNE,) which has also published an article about it.

One of the reasons I love this interactive visualization so much is the multiple ways in which the data is visualized —bubble plots, scatter plots, dot plots, tables, etc.— and also the animated transitions between them. Don't miss it.
