Monthly #ProjectHealthViz data sets
January – Medicaid Drug Spending 2020
September/October/November/December – No data
August – Mental Health Care Professionals Shortages – Visualize data obtained from the Kaiser Foundation (originally from Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA)) regarding the number of Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) designations in each state. HPSA’s are used to identify areas and population groups within the United States that are experiencing a shortage of health professionals.
July – Rural Hospital Closures (updated data) – In February 2019, this data set was featured and my viz actually ended up a VOTD. Now that 3 more years have passed, I’ve updated the data set to visualize.
June – Monthly Cannabis Exposures – Visualize monthly data from the American Association of Poison Control Centers exploring the changing case numbers over the years between Cannabidiol (CBD) and Synthetic Cannabinoid exposures.
February/March/April/May – No data. Personal hiatus.
January – One Year of Sleep – Visualize my sleep data! This data set is part of my “Visualize Someone” series, meant to provide you with data on an actual individual. For this month, this data is meant to help you think about time series data and, while this is my sleep data, you are welcome to use your own if you have it or use this data to think about ways you may want to visualize your own data in the future.
December – Trends in Youth Sports – Extra challenge: Make a mobile friendly design.
October/November – No data sets, time off required
September – Biggest Healthcare Data Breaches – Extra challenge: Do some research to add some contextual information (text, annotations, description, links, etc) to help your user understand the data.

May – Registered Nursing Labor Stats (1998-2020) – Extra challenge: Draw inspiration from someone else’s viz and be sure to note them in your published visualization!
April – Quantified Self – There is no official data set this month since the data is all about YOU! We do quantified self data twice a year. You can utilize data you may already have available such as perhaps from an application such as fitness, food tracker, sleep, medication, etc. or if you don’t, then take 2 weeks to keep track of something (maybe what time you shower, how often you have a drink or go to the bathroom, how long you run, your daily moods or thoughts, what triggers you to yell, types of conversations you have, etc. – anything related to health) and then visualize it. Extra challenge: Use only two colors in your visualization (not including black and white).
March – Adaptive Sports – Includes three possible data sets: UK Paralympics, Paralympics Historical, Wheelchair Marathon Winners. This month is a collaboration between #DiversityinData, #SportsVizSunday, and #ProjectHealthViz – please be sure to enter into all three submission trackers. Extra challenge: Use parameter or set actions (in Tableau), or a feature you have never used before.
February – UK Hospital Admissions for Youth <18 (2016-2018) – Extra challenge: Use a custom image for the title (create in tool of your choice – PowerPoint, Figma, Canva, Illustrator, etc.) and a custom button, shape, or background image.
