About Stateminder

Stateminder is a flexible, user-friendly visualization and analysis website containing political, economic, social and demographic data about the United States over time.

Stateminder compiles data about hundreds of variables that is organized by individual state and by year, and users can view this data through motion charts that show the relationships between variables. Each motion chart captures six elements–region, state, year, state size, and two other variables of the user’s choice. These charts can be employed to identify interesting and unusual patterns in the evolution of the states and American politics. Stateminder also provides data sets that can be downloaded for further analysis.
