Students engaging in data visualization projects build interactive data visualizations, including tools or dashboards for the organization, that drive informed business decisions. These visualizations include Excel Sheets with data, other off-the-shelf products, and specialized tools. Deliverables include (but are not limited to) data visualization tool, final presentation, data dashboard and user manual on using data tools.

Reducing school crime by analyzing the trends IPSCR’s student survey data

Client: Inter-University for Political and Social Research (IPSCR)
Year: Spring 2017
 

CLIENT INFORMATION NEED

The Inter-University for Political and Social Research (IPSCR) maintains a multi-year series of survey results on the students’ perspectives on topics such as bullying and/or school safety, drugs, etc. Our clients at IPSCR wanted the student team to analyze the survey data and determine trends in student perspectives. These trends will help IPCSR make policy-making decisions related to reducing school crime such as bullying, violence, drug use, and the like. 

WHAT WE DID

  • Reviewed the data from two National Crime Surveys spanned across a decade. 
  • Using tools like Tableau, they created information visualization graphs to show the trends of the survey.
  • Created a tutorial-based report that demonstrated how other individuals from IPCSR might download, database, and use data sets from these surveys to discover and investigate trends or unique patterns in the data.
