Infographics are a cool way to present complex data; we’re trying to use more of them ourselves. Learn Stuff has a series, with the most recent focusing on unequal pay for women. Four years after President Obama signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act as his first law, men in nearly all sectors of the economy are paid about $120 for every $100 a woman is paid to do the same job. That’s true even though women score better grades and pay the same price for a college degree. Another Learn Stuff infographic looks at voter participation in the 2012 versus 2008 election, and others range from explaining drug use amoung kids to unpacking corn subsidies.
