First-Year Innovation and Research Experience: Semester 1 project
This repository contains all of the major documents and results from my first semester research project as a part of the FIRE120 course.
FIRE, the First-Year Innovation and Research Experience, is a set of courses designed to introduce freshman to research experience early in their college career.
My collaborators on this project were: Richard Liang, Darwin Ma, and Adam Kaushik.

For our project, we measured the relationship between public health, socioeconomic status, and the distances sample populations are away from cities. Our goal was to examine how socio-economic status and urban sprawl affected public health. Our data came from two main sources: the Community Health Status Indicators (CHSI) dataset, which contains a variety of data on public health in thousands of U.S. counties and the US Census Demographic Data, a dataset compiled from the 2015 government census data.
