Making Data Simple: Dashboards and Visualizations
The Allegheny County Office of Analytics, Technology and Planning (ATP) of the Allegheny County Department of Human Services and the Philadelphia Field Division of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) use data visualizations to improve understanding of substance use, criminal justice, and public health outcomes. Representatives from both organizations demonstrate some of the data visualization techniques that are used.
Presentation topics include what it takes to convince agency leadership to widely employ data visualization; how data visualization leads to improved communication; assembling the necessary components to create successful data visualization efforts; how data is presented to inform key stakeholders; and developing strategy and public policy from the results of data visualization.
