The Racial Equity Data Lab is a new space on the Atlas where you can create your own data displays, dashboards, and maps. The Lab has everything you need to tell your community’s equity story using Atlas data and Tableau: ready-to-use datasets, data visualizations basics, and a step-by-step guide to get you started. Learn more about the Lab, how we’re using it to support equity campaigns, and how to create custom data visualizations for your community.
