To use the Patchwork Nation platform and visual data display to provide a portrait of a nation in the midst of economic, political and cultural change.
Patchwork Nation has embarked on a new partnership with "The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer," working along with The Christian Science Monitor, and you may have noticed some changes on the site in the past week. Consider this a tour of the new site, which gives users many more opportunities to get inside the numbers we regularly examine and the community types we have identified across the nation’s 3,100-plus counties. There are now essentially two versions of the site: The Christian Science Monitor’s and the "NewsHour’s." Patchwork Nation is an effort designed to better study and analyze the United States as it undergoes a period of dramatic change. It is funded by the Knight Foundation.
