This chapter focuses on data visualization and its potential uses in participatory research, exploratory data analysis, program evaluation, and dissemination of research results. User-friendly interactive data visualizations may enable people to manipulate large data sets, allowing for instant reconfiguration of the display based on specified variables. Participatory researchers with indigenous knowledge of their community who are able to effectively interact with data sets may generate predictions or research questions that may never occur to social scientists. Data visualization also has considerable potential with respect to the dissemination of research results, enabling individuals, organizations, and policymakers to better understand complex concepts and relationships and make data-informed decisions. The chapter includes a case example exploring how interactive data visualizations were employed in partnership with a Hawaii-based coalition dedicated to preventing child abuse and neglect.
