Comparing Global Gender Inequality
Web developer Ri Liu has developed an interactive data visualization to observe global gender inequality over time as measured by participation in the workforce, educational outcomes, and presence in government, and income levels. Liu’s interactive visualization, called “Close the Gap”, uses data from the United Nation’s 2014 Human Development Report on 161 different countries from 1990 to 2013. Liu created “Close the Gap” to call more attention to gender disparities, which she believes lack sufficient well-designed visualizations to properly understand the problem.
