about

i’m mike. i like journalism, politics, and data visualization. this is where i store experiments and rough sketches of ideas.

i try my best to provide an accurate picture of the data, but there are always errors when aggregating and working with large datasets: geocoding errors, misspellings, duplicate records, etc. despite my efforts, there are sometimes errors that make their way into the final product. as such, there is no guarantee of 100% accuracy in these visualizations.

you can contact me via the “ask” link above, or send an email to mtahani at gmail dot com.
