Explore the relationship between Iowa community college majors and the economic sector in which they work. The Iowa Department of Education and Iowa Workforce Development teamed-up to track the ability of students obtaining jobs in sectors related to their training. Nearly every state has the capacity to conduct similar analysis.
Users can hover over segments on the main image to see the transitions from a major to the workforce, or vice versa. The left side of the diagram are groupings of majors (career cluster), and the right side are groupings of industrial sectors. A drop-down menu on the right-side lets readers pull-up specific information on majors.
The main image was designed using the chord diagram from the D3 library. The page is compatible with Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari, iOS, and Android 3.0+. It is a redesign of a poster created earlier using Circos. Compared to the poster, this diagram is easier for readers to explore.
