We find ourselves in the era of big data, a time when information moves faster than ever, and infographics provide us with quick, often influential bursts of insight—into the environment, politics, social issues, health, sports, arts and culture, and more. The Best American Infographics is an annual volume that captures the finest examples of this important, influential art form. The Best American Infographics 2016, with an introduction by RadioLab’s Robert Krulwich, is the fourth and final volume in the series.
