Program Overlap Matrix


PolicyWise for Children and Families had a unique data set anonymously linking individuals’ use of 21 different programs provided by various ministries in the government of Alberta. They wanted a way to share and explore these relationships.


Tables of numbers were the original format for sharing, but we wanted people to be able to identify patterns. So we created an interactive that allows the data to be sorted on based on aspects of the programs. Stakeholders and the public can use the tool to discover relationships between programs.
