CQ Economy Tracker

A massive data visualization tool that lets users find out how the U.S. economy is performing, including breakouts on jobs, house prices, inflation and income. The visualization was designed & developed by the editorial multimedia team of CQ-Roll Call Group, the premier political news and information provider covering congress.

The data is collected from government and non-government sources; the interactive shows all historical data and is updated live as new data is released. It also features a glossary with sources and descriptions of the data and the data is available for download in Excel format. We think it's the first interactive tool of its kind to pair up this much national and regional/state data side-by-side. It's hooked up to a database and was built in Flash. All of the components, including the graphing and mapping portions, were custom built and are fully reusable APIs.
