  • 21. Technically How
    Funding data joined (table) to the appropriate geography (check for nulls)
    County, city or school district Resultant file is then unioned with legislative district (House or Senate) (County_Funding_Union)
    Nulls were reviewed and deleted where appropriate. These were generally the result of the lack of integrated topology. (County_Funding_Union)
    SqMi (Double) was added and calculated to ensure a significant portion of the legislative district was within the County. Any area less than 10 sq/mi (County), less than .023 sq/mi (city(check all up to .1 sqmi)) was deleted (County_Funding_Union)
  • 22. Technically How
    County_Funding_Unionconverted to a point file (Feature to Point) for display purposes ((County_Funding_Union_Feature)
    Add type Column to each file
    Merge with previously merged files/Clean
    Run update query to consolidate all calculations for each district to a single row
    Create Pie charts by district. Doing so at a state level skews the visual
    Reports run manually on each district to complete the template below.
  • 23. Parts and Pieces
  • 24. Keep it simple stupid
    Present the same way they are accustom to seeing reports
    Use all the space available (2 pages front/back)
    Failure is not an option
  • 25. Fonts matter be consistency
    Leader lines are messy
    Whole numbers play nice
    All numbers should better match
    Remember geography rules ($ is in or out)
    People know their area
    Check, recheck, and check again. Then be ready to fix
