Presidential Executive Orders
Anyone watching the news lately has come across often heated discussions about executive orders. But what exactly are executive orders and what do they entail? More importantly, given the polarizing political spectrum as of late, how do executive orders of one president differ from another? In researching the answer to these questions, we came across several notable sources that would list out executive orders, such as the American Presidency Project but we wanted to have a more comprehensive tool that would let us view the orders, their differences and have the ability to research them deeper. So we built a Presidential Executive Orders data visualization tool to navigate every documented executive order and compare the patterns between presidencies. This tool also allows you to search for specific words and their use in the orders, compare political party orders, year-by-year, and to read each order in its entirety.
