Seeing Data

This is a lovely pair of microsites that effectively visualise data regarding migration numbers and related news stories in the UK. The first site tracks media news stories over an 8 year period. The data is then broken down into time periods, the amount of stories, and the type of media outlet that is producing the articles.
The second site looks specifically shows the exact data on migration for each of the regions in England and Wales, taken from the national census. It focusses on showing precise metrics on demographics and social aspects, and allows comparison between regions via a range of graphic visualisations.
