The Global Protest Map: Data sketches

The strike data is taken from the International Labor Organization's LABORSTA database of yearly labor statistics. The data represents the amount of strikes in the computer components industry per year from 1992- 2002. Participants use a slider, which moves from right to left, to advance and reverse through the time period.

The following are images of changes in striking levels of women assembly-line workers in factories that produce computer components.

The image on the left displays striking levels in 1992 and the image on the right displays these levels in 2002.
