Visualized: Over 4 Million Micro-Loans Fly Around the Globe Kiva is a company that facilitates micro-loans between people from all over the world; incidentally, nothing to do with the Finnish KiVA. With the help of this non-profit, anyone can donate as little as $25 or as much as the sum of any single loan — you can read the stories of many different people seeking financial support across the globe; there are students, farmers, entrepreneurs and those looking to improve their physical living conditions. Kiva released a video visualizing the micro-loans that happened across the world in its five-year lifespan — a total of 4 million loans in 4 minutes: 620,000 lenders funding 615,000 entrepreneurs. Get inspired, and make a loan today — it’s a simple way to help a real person.

A Bit Rich A Bit Rich This report takes a new approach to looking at the value of work. We go beyond how much different professions are paid to look at what they contribute to society. We use some of the principles and valuation techniques of Social Return on Investment analysis to quantify the social, environmental and economic value that these roles produce – or in some cases undermine. December 14, 2009 // Written by: Susan Steed, Researcher, Finance and BusinessHelen Kersley, Head of Valuing What Matters Eilís Lawlor Pay matters. Introduction We are in the wake of the worst financial crisis for a century. The controversies over City bankers’ bonuses raise fundamental questions not only about the remuneration of senior executives and public servants but also about the relative value of the work of everyone in our society. In this report the New Economics Foundation (NEF) takes a new approach to looking at the value of work. Our report tells the story of six different jobs. Conclusions Issues Close

Les data en forme Pour cette nouvelle fournée de veille de datajournalisme, nous revenons sur quelques projets qui ont pu nous/vous échapper durant les Jeux olympiques. Comme souvent par ici, nous avons encore mis la main sur des petites perles de cartographie(s), et cette semaine, en bonus, il y a même un zeste de PSG. Oui oui. On commence fort avec le Wall Street Journal, qui dépote désormais de l’application interactive à un rythme soutenu (on l’évoquait la semaine passée) comme le font les éminents Guardian et New York Times. L’application “Murder in America” [en] permet ainsi “d’explorer une base de données interactive des meurtres commis aux États-Unis entre 2000 et 2010″ tout en permettant de raffiner sa requête aisément selon les critères apparaissant dans les comptes rendus rassemblés par le FBI (“race” — au sens où ce mot est utilisé outre-Atlantique —, sexe du meurtrier ou de la victime, circonstances du meurtre, localisation géographique, type d’arme, etc.). Carto par-ci, carto par-là

How the world’s populations are changing, in one map Blue countries have growing populations; red countries are shrinking. Purple are growing slowly or not at all. Data source: United Nations Population Fund. Click to enlarge. It's often said that demographics are destiny. All of that makes the above map really important for how we think about the trajectories of nations and of the world. A note on the data: The researchers estimate current population growth by averaging the annual change in each country's population, per year, between 2010 and 2015. (1) The big story is sub-Saharan Africa Almost all of the countries growing more than 2 percent per year are in Africa. Africa's amazing growth could bring great opportunity for the countries there, as well as significant risk. (2) Continued rapid growth in the Middle East The Arab Middle East has been experiencing a very significant youth bulge over the last few years, meaning that an unusually large share of the population is young people. Japan is the world's third-largest economy.

Co.Design Pulse of the Nation: U.S. Mood Throughout the Day inferred from Twitter Click for high-resolution PDF version (11MB) Video A time-lapse video of the maps, cycled twice, is available below (best viewed at 720p): Mood Variations A number of interesting trends can be observed in the data. Similar variations were discovered independently by Michael Macy and Scott Golder, and first reported in the talk "Answers in Search of a Question" at the New Directions in Text Analysis Conference in May 2010. Weekly Variations Weekly trends can be observed as well, with weekends happier than weekdays. About the Data and Visualization The plots were calculated using over 300 million tweets (Sep 2006 - Aug 2009) collected by MPI-SWS researchers [1], represented as density-preserving cartograms. About Cartograms A cartogram is a map in which the mapping variable (in this case, the number of tweets) is substituted for the true land area. Who We Are We are researchers from Northeastern University and Harvard University, studying the characteristics and dynamics of Twitter. Coverage

FedStats Les data en forme Pour ce 46e épisode et première veille datajournalisme de la rentrée, Owni prend la route avec l'ami Kerouac, se met plein de bulles data dans la tête, plonge dans des océans perpétuels un peu planants et ouvre bien grand les yeux sur ce fichu pétrole, source de tous nos maux passés et à venir. Jack Kerouac a écrit son fameux roman Sur la route en trois semaines sur un rouleau de téléscripteur de 35 mètres de long. D’un trait. La méthodologie est simple : chaque mot du bouquin vaut 0,85 millimètre et chaque nouvelle phrase est célébrée par un virage à droite. Walmart partout, Walmart nulle part On reste chez l’Oncle Sam, en moins poétique, pour la prochaine dataviz qui s’appelle “l’invasion Walmart“, du nom de ce “petit” supermarché étasunien qui superdomine le paysage de superconsommation de l’autre côté de l’Atlantique. Titi et le beau Romney Ouvrons à présent la minute “Elections US” (ça va être data-tendu jusqu’en novembre, autant se le dire). Des bulles des bulles des bulles

Search engine data visualisations « Search insights I’ve decided I need a single place to put all of the search engine data visuals that I’ve been working on. The visuals are made up of thousands of actual queries put into search engines by UK users over the course of a year. This gives us an idea of ‘search demand’ which can/may/should equal actual, offline demand for a topic. Feel free to republish however please link to this blog and also to James Webb who helped to create them. They can be downloaded as PDF’s at the bottom of this page. Click the links below to open the visuals in PDF format for better quality printing / viewing. Overall Gardening Health Science Nature History Questions Like this: Like Loading...
