Spitz Foundation through the Scranton Area Community Foundation to produce a series of videos to help explain critical issues in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

Titled The Data Visualization Video Series, the videos focus on three key areas: Workforce Development, Housing Inequality, and Child Abuse. The project creates compelling informational videos based on The Institute’s Data Indicators, condensing the reports into short 2–3-minute videos.
