Map your moves

My entry for the The Brian Lehrer Show
– Map Your Moves: Data Visualization Challenge
. The data comes from a Census survey in which nearly 1700 people responded, which asked when, why, and where each person has moved over the last 10 years.

I chose to deal with all the data between 2000-2009, and explore these entries, apart from the zip codes. For the Trends chart, on the right, I’ve interpreted the explanations for the initial reason “Other” and moved to the more apropriate reason, such as: those who said they moved from rent to owners -> Can afford a better place, or divorce -> Roomate or Relationship problems. Also I added the “Love or Marriage” reason, because it was a common explanation.
