Translating Growth Lab research into online visualizations
The Viz Hub is a portfolio of visualization tools, interactive stories, and supporting software packages, powered by the Growth Lab's research. All projects found on the Viz Hub are built in-house by the Growth Lab's Digital Development & Design Team, an interdisciplinary group that connects economic and policy research with best practices from information design, software development, data science, product management, and digital humanities.
