Elder Index Dashboard


  • Choropleth mapping
  • Data visualization
  • PDF & Excel exporting
  • MySQL database

On an annual basis, researchers at the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research create the Elder Index, an evidence-based indicator of the actual costs faced by older adults in California. By leveraging R, Shiny, Shiny Server, MySQL, and a plethora of data visualization packages, I developed an interactive dashboard that presents cost-of-living information in intuitive and user-friendly ways.

The dashboard uses a variety of R packages, from data viz packages (leaflet, highcharter, DT), to data manipulation packages (plyr, dplyr, tidyr), and unix applications to dynamically create and serve PDF reports to users.

The dashboard is freely available here.
