Module 5: Using Data

<script type='text/javascript'>                    var divElement = document.getElementById('viz1615782091840');                    var vizElement = divElement.getElementsByTagName('object')[0];          '1016px';'991px';                    var scriptElement = document.createElement('script');                    scriptElement.src = '';                    vizElement.parentNode.insertBefore(scriptElement, vizElement);                </script>

I chose Option A, and, as a second-generation Capital Region Italian (though my people are Schenectady, not Albany), I decided to create visualizations showing the number of Italian immigrants recorded in the Albany census from 1880-1940 (I excluded 1850, as Italy wasn’t yet a unified nation at that point..). The first slide shows the number of immigrants overall, and the next two show immigrant occupations by gender over time. The shift over time in occupations, especially among women, is really interesting.

As far as coursework I’ve enjoyed the most, I’m admittedly a data nerd and I could spend all day cleaning data sets and creating basic visualizations — well, I guess it’s not that I could spend all day doing it, it’s more that I do spend my work days cleaning data and making visualizations.
