About

Chart Porn is compiled by Washington DC based economist/artist Dustin Smith.  This site grew out of an admiration for all the amazing data analysis work being done in the world, and the desire to pull it all together in one place to feed into my personal creativity- rolodex.  The blog’s original focus on economics and graphic design has expanded over time to cover a wide range of topics.

Please email me (dustin@chartporn.org) if you have any suggestions or comments. I don’t always have time to reply to every email – but I do read them all.

Enormous thanks to the bloggers who assist in finding this stuff, and to the wonderful researchers, analysts, and graphic artists who created them in the first place!  Please forgive the occasional lapse in blogger etiquette — I always try to link to the original source and credit any bloggers/artists appropriately, but I’m sure I miss the target occasionally.

 Thanks!
