The Kansas Data Project: Injustice by the Numbers
The purpose of this project is to improve government data transparency and policymaking in Kansas. You will find local and state data on elections and voting, incarceration, and policing among others. It will be updated as additional data sets become available. Here are some top findings listed in detail on the dashboard: Arrest Disparities, Police Spending, Immigration, Deportation, and Military-Style Equipment. There are many more data sources included in the project. Direct links to specific topics are listed below.
