What Happens When the Government Shuts Down?

When researching infographics, using reputable sources is a must… well it’s a must if you want to ensure quality. At Killer Infographics, we spend a lot of our time on government websites like census.gov gathering data and information that ensures our infographics not only tell great stories, but also a factual one. Today though, we’re at a loss. Why? Because when the government shuts down, so do their websites!

Who would’ve thought that a shutdown truly means shutting down everything?

On the bright side, at least we found some time to write a long overdue blog post.
