Data visualizations using Tableau Public

The Data Center


March 2012 - April 2012

We created two interactive data visualizations using Tableau Public.

One illustrates population changes from 2000 to 2010, as well as population projections by race and age for five year increments until 2030. It shows that, assuming no net in–migration, the New Orleans metro will be “majority minority” by 2030. The working age population will diversify slightly more quickly and 52 percent of working age adults in the New Orleans metro will be people of color by 2030. Fully 60 percent of children under 18 years of age will be non–white by 2030. These projections were developed as a part of the Data Center’s report “Building an Inclusive, High–Skilled Workforce for New Orleans’ Next Economy.”

The other illustrates the percent of workers commuting between metros in Southeast Louisiana. Although most workers commute within their census–designated metropolitan areas, a sizable share commute from one metro to the next. This interactive graphic depicts the interconnections between the three metros in the Southeast Louisiana “super region”: Baton Rouge, New Orleans, and Houma–Thibodaux. These projections were developed as a part of the Data Center’s report “Economic ties across Southeast Louisiana: Preliminary findings from commuter data.”
