    Agricultural Productivity Differences Between Male and Female Managed Farms

    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. Across most African countries, women farmers produce less per hectare than their male counterparts. This visualization uses data from the World Bank as well as the ONE campaign to explore some of the major contributors to this gender gap, allowing the reader to not only see the direct consequences of inequality on agricultural outputs, but also to recognize some of the largest country-specific drivers of the gap, significant information for citizens and policy-makers alike in addressing inequality.
