The 53rd competition to crown a new football champion will feature teams hailing from California and Massachusetts. Did you know that this game also features players from 27 different states, and three countries? The Big Game Census interactive visualization takes a closer look at the players’ hometowns, and gives you access to Census data points for those places. If you have not decided which team you are pulling for this Sunday, maybe you’ll find a connection to your state or your hometown that will help you decide.

Click on a city or state to begin. Next, explore the table and bar chart to learn more about the birthplaces of the players in the big game. Click on the hyperlinks (when available) to be redirected to a site for more information on various geographies. For more guidance, and helpful hints, click on the help icon (the circled question mark) in the top right.

This data visualization is best viewed on a laptop or desktop computer. For a mobile, phone-friendly version, please click here.
