The Dashboard Roadmap, a User Journey Video Series

April 10, 2024

By Caleigh Paster

The Congressional District Health Dashboard has a wealth of data and features to provide elected officials, advocates, community leaders, and the media with data-backed evidence to promote positive change in health and well-being. Seeing data presented visually helps us comprehend data in a new way, illuminating challenges and successes within a community. While we continue to offer Virtual Office Hours and share new data findings in each data release, we know that everyone learns in a different way. That’s why we are excited to introduce our new animated video series called the Dashboard Roadmap. 

This video series leads users through bite-sized videos sharing potential user journeys through the site, like an advocate looking for health data to develop an outreach campaign, a representative eager for support on passing a bill to improve nationwide broadband, or a staffer developing talking points for a summit on health and housing, and more. The series aims to capture some of the Dashboard's best features, such as using the Metric Maps to go from a national view to the census tract level, accessing demographic details for a particular metric, viewing the district snapshot for an overview of health, or accessing the data through our data download page. These user journeys will share how an idea can move from conception to data to action. This series will help you get acquainted with our tools and become an expert in no time. 

As we continue to build out these videos, we will post each episode to this blog, as well as on our YouTube channel. You will also be able to find each new video in our newsletter and on social media. Make sure you’re subscribed and follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn to stay up-to-date on all the new content.
