    The Story Behind the Data

    Partnering with the United Nations Development Programme on Africa Human Development, Parsons Data Visualization students investigate how gender inequality impacts economics on a micro- and macro level. What story does the AFHDR data tell when condensed into a one-sentence biography of an average female citizen? The page displays a single, run-on sentence describing the life of an average female citizen of a given African country through the lens of the data provided. The user can cycle through countries by selecting them from a drop-down menu or pressing ← and →. Visit the interactive project page.
