Data Sources#

All of the data analyzed in this book are available on the book’s website, and on the GitHub repository for the book. These datasets are from open repositories and from individuals. We acknowledge them all here, and include, as appropriate, the file name for the data stored in our repository, a link to the original source, a related publication, and the author(s)/owner(s).

To begin, we provide the sources for the four case studies in the book. Our analysis of the data in these case studies is based on research articles or, in one case, a blog post. We generally follow the line of inquiry in these sources, but we have usually simplified the analyses to match the level of the book.

In addition to these case studies, another 20-plus datasets were used as examples throughout the book. We acknowledge the people and organizations that made these datasets available in the order in which they appeared in the book.
