Every year, Statistics Canada collects data through hundreds of surveys and numerous administrative data sources. To complement the ongoing work of various Agency programs, interactive data visualization products are being created to help users obtain data in an easy, attractive and modern manner. These products include hubs, dashboards and interactive graphics.
As the use of this model increases, it is important to ensure that it provides a positive user experience and allows users to obtain the desired data efficiently.
This consultation will ensure that the interactive self-serve products are compliant with a set of usability principles and will identify any potential usability problems so that improvements can be made going forward.
This is the fourth phase of a series of consultations on Statistics Canada's interactive data visualization products.
Statistics Canada will conduct in-person usability consultations in Ottawa, Ontario. Participants will be asked to complete a series of tasks and to provide feedback on the products.
