More data from Data Is Plural

The Health Inequality Project "uses big data to measure differences in life expectancy by income across areas and identify strategies to improve health outcomes for low-income Americans."   DC is included in the three ranking categories compiled by the project:
  • Commuting Zones; Level of Life Expectancy
  • Commuting Zones; Annual Change in Life Expectancy
  • Counties; Level of Life Expectancy

Like baseball?   Journalist Sean Lahman is rather fanatical and maintains a database of data on teams, players, and other (I guess) interesting information.   See Lahman’s Baseball Database.

The Political TV Ad Archive "is a project of the Internet Archive. This site provides a searchable, viewable, and shareable online archive of 2016 political TV ads, married with fact-checking and reporting citizens can trust."   The data can be used for various purposes, including educating students (see Ten engaging ways educators can use the Political TV Ad Archive).   I wish this had been available when I was in college!   It would have saved time and allowed for better analysis!
