The data of a happy city: Lewis Mitchell

“The main thing…is to be able to combine disparate sets of data to come up with a coherent picture of the character of a city.”

Using a wide variety of social data, Lewis Mitchell constructs fascinating maps and charts to visualize happiness across countries, states, and even individual cities. At TEDxUVM, he shares how these findings could guide real political and urban issues decision makers. (Filmed at TEDxUVM)
