Infographic shows spikes in Google searches for “voter registration” and “early voting”

Though cable news outlets and DC newspapers like Politico cover politics 365 days a year, the vast majority of Americans only really become intensely interested in an election in its last leg. Only then do they seek out a closer look at who’s running for office and, more important, where they stand. Unsurprisingly, many of them turn to Google to ferret out this information.

For the past few months, my colleagues at Beutler Ink have worked closely with the team at Google Politics & Elections to comb through Google’s extensive search data and surface interesting trends that give key insight into the voting public. For instance, the infographic below shows a sharp spike in interest in recent weeks for both “voter registration” and “early voting.”

Infographic charts the success of the Ice Bucket Challenge, both in awareness and money raised

My colleagues and I at Beutler Ink wanted to see if we could track the success of the Ice Bucket Challenge, charting the correlation between the amount of interest in ALS and the money raised by donors. To do this, we first used Google Trends data to show the spike in interest via searches for “ALS,” and then we overlaid it with publicly available fundraising figures released by the ALS Association. We then added a third piece of data: The dates and YouTube viewership figures for all the major celebrities who participated in the challenge.

Amazing infographics that track the prevalence of the seven deadly sins in the U.S.

According to the imgur user who uploaded these, “Geographers from Kansas State plotted the 7 deadly sins on a map of the U.S. The darker your county is, the more ‘sinful’ it is.” For instance, in order to calculate Greed, the geographers compared the “average incomes with the total number of inhabitants living beneath the poverty line.” For Envy, they based it on the total number of thefts.

An interactive infographic mapping the recurring jokes in Arrested Development

Anyone who’s a fan of Arrested Development knows that one of the joys in watching the show is trying to catch all the recurring jokes that pop up like little Easter eggs, many of them easy to miss if you’re not watching closely. Whether it’s the color blue, exclamations of “No touching!” or “I’ve made a huge mistake,” you’re bound to miss at least a few references.

My colleagues at Beutler Ink thought, “Wouldn’t it be cool if you had a website that you could go to that would allow you to trace every occurrence of a particular joke?” After spending hours combing through episode after episode, we did just that. Recurring Developments is an interactive website that allows you to hover over each joke and trace it to the corresponding episodes.
