Background and Challenge
The Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank whose mission is to inform and improve public policy in California through independent, objective, research. The focus for this project was on poverty among young children ages 0–5 using the California Poverty Measure, which – unlike the official poverty measure – accounts for variation in the cost of living and the cash value of safety net benefits.
A team of communications staff, researchers, and subject matter experts from PPIC came to Graphicacy for help in creating an embeddable dashboard with the goal of making a large amount of information easy to navigate and interpret. We needed to design and build a tool that would allow users to quickly scan the impact of multiple policy areas on the lives of real people.
