Problem identification

The Pew Research Religious Landscape survey data was very interesting, but hard to navigate and didn’t have good SEO. The pathways into the data were rigid, and didn’t allow for exploration, drilling in to additional detail, or switching between a single population segment profile and comparisons between disparate population segments.
