Using data from the U.S. Census Bureau and the 2015 Residential Energy Consumption Survey, NORC employs virtual reality (VR) technology to illustrate differences in income and housing across the country based on regional and demographic characteristics. Viewers can fully immerse themselves in the experience, hearing, seeing, and ‘feeling’ the data in a new way by using the pan button in the upper left-hand corner of the video (desktop), a VR viewer, or through making slight directional adjustments to the positioning of an iPhone or Android mobile phone.
