Mobile Users: If you are having issues using the interactive version of this visualization, you can find a static version of it here.
I wanted to create a visualization that could be used to compare some of the traits of each state to the U.S. average. This visualization takes some of the demographic traits I am most interested in and allows you to look at how it compares.
To create this data visualization I gathered data from the American Community Survey. I used the 2015 ACS 1 years estimates from the Census Bureau’s API. I then manipulated the data in excel and used Tableau to visualize the data.
