First-Year Innovation and Research Experience: Semester 1 project

TL;DR:

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.

Project Summary:

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.
