The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has created new data visualizations to illustrate existing online employment discrimination data found here, the federal agency has announced.
The purpose of these visuals, created by the EEOC’s Office of Enterprise Data and Analytics (OEDA), is to display enforcement data in a simple, comprehensible, and visually appealing way for all the EEOC’s stakeholders.
“These data visualizations will help illustrate statistics for employment discrimination charges and resolutions for the general public as well as specialists in anti-discrimination law,” said EEOC Chair Janet Dhillon. “Additionally, these new visual tools are part of the agency’s broader effort to bring greater transparency to EEOC’s operations.”
The visuals illustrate data over five years for charges of employment discrimination and resolutions for:
Sexual Harassment Charges
“OEDA is pleased to provide these new tools for the public,” said Chief Data Officer Dr. Chris Haffer. “Data visualizations, such as those released today, are just one example of the products OEDA is developing as part of its effort to build a 21st century data analytics office at the EEOC.”
