Completed in 2014
This project was created during the Extractive Industries Data Dive hackathon on April 11-13, 2014. The hackathon was jointly hosted by the United Nations Development Programme and Columbia University's Quantitative Methods for Social Sciences department.
Our particular challenge focused on exploring the relationship between extractive sector profitability ("rents") and fiscal revenues from resources ("government take"). Data cleaning and analysis was done primarily in R, and subsequent visualization was completed in Adobe Illustrator.
Additional visualizations were created after the hackathon by team member Tricia Jamison and can be viewed here.
