CEOs salaries were slashed in 2008 – less total compensation, smaller bonuses, nearly worthless stock options – but their companies are already making adjustments that could mean fatter paychecks in the future. An Associated Press analysis shows the median pay package for CEOs of companies in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 7 percent to $7.6 million in 2008. Research by Matt Fordahl and Capital IQ, design Nicolas Rapp.

Just over half of students in the principal school systems of the country’s 50 largest cities complete high school with a diploma. That rate remains well below the national graduation rate of about 71 percent, as only three of these 50 principal districts reach or exceed it.
The interesting fact about this chart is that it allows to navigate from coast to coast, rather than navigate a list classified by rate size or alphabetical order. See that as a kind of U.S. map that would be vertically shrank to the extreme. You can see the print graphic here. AP members also have a more traditional chart available here.
Stats are from the EPE Research Center.

Here is a new attempt to chart the government interventions. So far, $3.1 trillion were spent, which is 29% of the total $10.7 trillion authorized. I tried to find a system that would be easily understandable and would yet retains all the informations attached to each program. Payers, recipients, date of program launch, amount authorized, amount spent.

Under public and media pressure caused by the news that AIG used the bailout money to distribute generous bonuses, the group decided last night to publish stats on spending. I worked with Damiko Morris in DC to finding the best way to translate the six-page document into a comprehensive information graphic. Also check out ‘Slicing up the stimulus bill’, and Tracking the financial sector bailout. Other examples of flow charts from NYT Steve Duenes here, history of the Union Army here and Publico (Spain) here [Thanks to Infografistas.com]

Pharmaceutical waste is contaminating the nation’s drinking water supplies. Attached is one of the print graphic I did, as well as an interactive I work on with Phil Holm and Jake O’Connell. The logo was made for newspapers running the story. The investigation is still going on, and follow up should see the light of day in 2009.
