New Feature: Now You Can �Embed� Graphics That Update Automatically

Kidsdata.org is making it easier than ever for you to highlight key children’s health issues on your website and blog. We’ve just added a feature that lets you post on your site graphs, tables, and maps that are automatically updated whenever we update kidsdata.org.

This feature is available for any of the 400+ indicators on kidsdata.org; and for all 1,600 regions in California for which data are available.

Here's How it Works

  1. Go to kidsdata.org and select the graph, map or chart you want to embed.

  2. Click the EMBED icon in the toolbar at the top right corner of the page.

  3. Follow the instructions in the right column that say How to Add This Chart to Your Website, and copy the HTML code into your web page.

For an example of this new feature, see our recent post on Data Points, the kidsdata.org blog.

Other Ways to Tell Your Story About Kids' Well Being

Kidsdata.org also offers several other ways for you to share information about how children are faring. You can:

  • Copy the chart you’re viewing into Word documents or PowerPoint presentations
  • Create a PDF summary of the topic you’re viewing for distribution to others
  • Download the data into Excel to make your own graphs
  • Share the data via social networking sites, such as Facebook or Twitter.

Simply use the toolbar in the top right of a data page to employ any of these features.

Please Let Us Know When You Share Data from Kidsdata

We’re always trying to make kidsdata more user-friendly, and promote our users’ work, so we’d appreciate hearing about examples of how you use the new embedding feature or any of the other features noted above to incorporate data into your work. Send us an e-mail or post a comment on our Kidsdata in Action page, and we may be able to help you spread the word about your work.
