The UNAM is Mexico’s biggest and most important university. To enter it students must either take an exam or graduate from a high school run by the UNAM in less than 4 years with a grade point average of at least 70% (although some majors like medicine require 90% for pase directo). The admission exam is given twice a year, in February and June, and any student from any high school with at least a grade point average of 70% can take it. If the student meets the requirements for entering the UNAM, passing the exam guarantees him admission. The exam has 120 questions.

I liked this visualization by the New York Times of the US presidential election so much I decided to recreate it using Mexican data, and in the process added a slope graph. So go visit my new visualization of the change in presidential vote from 2006 to 2012 at the municipality level. I recommend using chrome to view the visualisation, there’s also a Spanish version.
Check out the interactive poll of polls I made.
P.S. There is a poll ban starting tomorrow so I’ll restrict access to the interactive chart to people outside Mexico.

The Mexican government recently released crime data for 2011 at the municipality level. Sadly, it is no disaggregated by month, but beggars can’t be choosers. To analyze the data I made an interactive map with d3 that includes the locations of the municipalities with the highest drug plant eradication and a 2d kernel density estimate of the location of meth labs based on newspaper reports.
