Exploring the Effects of Immigration Legislation on Immigration Patterns of the East and West Coasts

The data used behind this project is census data that Dr. Kane provided from IPUMS, the “Integrated Public Use Microdata Series,” for both Albany County, New York and Sacramento County, California from 1850-1900.

Using the Albany census data […]

Module 3: Intro to Colab and Observable

I feel like such a noob to coding when I try to read the directions, then have to reread the directions, and then perform the functions; but I got through it! (I think). I like how in Observable I don’t have to press play every time I want to perform a function, unlike Colab. How […]
