This study examines the effects of interactive graphics on reducing political misperceptions. An experiment was used to compare the effectiveness of an interactive versus a static graphic in conveying information about the United States unemployment rate. The graphic, in both conditions, was embedded in a news article. Using a student sample (N = 109), it was found that participants who saw the interactive graphic were more accurate and produced more thoughts than individuals in the static graphic condition. The implications of these findings for both political misperception research and journalism practice are discussed.
