0:00 Now that you know all about working with CSVs,
0:03 it's time to do some data journalism.
0:05 You're going to come up with an amazing question,
0:07 and find a data set, and answer some questions about it.
0:10 So, let's get you the steps here.
0:12 First day is, you're basically done with the first day.
0:15 It's more or less to watch the videos,
0:16 but the final thing to do, I hope you're inspired,
0:19 is to head over to the GitHub repo,
0:21 fivethirtyeight/data.
0:23 And sort of look through there
0:24 and find one of the data sets that looks interesting to you,
0:28 and think about answering some questions.
0:30 So, here's what an example of that may look like.
0:33 Alright, so you might want to write these three things down.
0:35 So, here's the goal, is, I found,
0:38 maybe I should put data set first in terms of the order,
0:41 but I found this data set on
0:43 where you live in the United States
0:45 you eat different things on the U.S. holiday Thanksgiving.
0:50 So, if you live in the American South,
0:52 you'd have one type of thing,
0:53 if you live in the North, in like the Northwest,
0:56 you eat something different.
0:58 It also varies by income, so pretty interesting.
1:01 So, you go over here and the goal is going to be to predict,
1:05 you know, ask two questions of the user,
1:06 and then predict what they have for Thanksgiving.
1:09 So, you ask them where do they live
1:11 and how much money does their family make,
1:13 and you're going to use this data set to basically,
1:17 generate a set of things they're going to eat, right.
1:20 You're going to eat turkey, and stuffing,
1:22 and mashed potatoes, and things like that.
1:24 And they answer the questions differently,
1:27 that menu that you provide to them might be different.
1:30 So, here's sort of the steps that you need
1:33 to do for those few things, alright.
1:35 I think that's going to be fun.
1:36 You don't write the program on day one.
1:37 You've already watched all those videos
1:39 and listened to me talk,
1:40 so you're goal is to just find the data set
1:42 and have a question.
