#165 Chicago's Million Dollar Blocks



Chicago’s Million Dollar Blocks is a newly launched website exploring where Illinois is spending public dollars on incarceration, created by Dr. Dan Cooper, Dr. Ryan Lugalia-Hollon, and DataMade.

Dan Cooper will discuss research on the impact of incarceration at the neighborhood level. He’ll also share more effective ways to invest tax dollars towards social & economic well-being.

Cathy Deng will share the process of transforming raw materials — data & text — into an interactive story on the web, and the design decisions involved.
