# California Housing

## Source
This dataset is a modified version of the California Housing dataset available from [http://www.dcc.fc.up.pt/~ltorgo/Regression/cal_housing.html](Luís Torgo's page) (University of Porto). Luís Torgo obtained it from the StatLib repository (which is closed now). The dataset may also be downloaded from StatLib mirrors.

This dataset appeared in a 1997 paper titled *Sparse Spatial Autoregressions* by Pace, R. Kelley and Ronald Barry, published in the *Statistics and Probability Letters* journal. They built it using the 1990 California census data. It contains one row per census block group. A block group is the smallest geographical unit for which the U.S. Census Bureau publishes sample data (a block group typically has a population of 600 to 3,000 people).

Hi @pmcauchi ,

If you want to download the csv file itself, you need to navigate to it in github, then click on "raw file", then save it to disk. The file is here: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ageron/handson-ml/master/datasets/housing/housing.csv

Hope this helps.

Hi @seonpy ,
Did you try installing this project and running the Jupyter notebooks? What functions can I help you with?
