what point do you hope to make?
This exercise is designed to help you get started on your Project 2 “Information Design” report.
Let’s begin by making a choice. Select one of the three data sets provided for you on the previous page (i.e., the “Census Bureau” dataset, the “FBI Crime” dataset, or the “Pew Trust” dataset.) Spend some time with your selected data set, then submit the following:
A brief descriiption of your data set
A full citation for the data set in any style (APA, MLA, etc.)
A descriiption of your purpose for using the data. In other words, what point to you hope to make?
…And to whom? (Who will your target audience be?)
After submitting this information, you can begin to design your three visuals.
