NYC Department of Consumer Affairs

Data Visualization & Identity & Print Design

The New York City Department of Consumer Affairs Office of Financial Empowerment (NYC DCA OFE) conducted a bunch of research over the 2016–2017 year; their goal was to compare Bed-Stuy and East Harlem, two less-affluent neighborhoods in New York City, to their more wealthy counterparts, the Upper East Side and Park Slope. It wasn’t just comparing salaries—OFE wanted to see about access to banks, number of women and minority-owned businesses and the amount of payday loan establishments per square mile. This raw data, given in many forms, was taken and made into a series of infographics to be printed and presented to other government agencies to continue their research into other low-income areas.
