State of the City
The goal of this project is to build a corpus of State of the City speeches made by mayors across America. Right now I'm focusing three years of speeches from the twenty largest cities in America and am tracking my progress here.
As I'm collecting these data, I'm publishing a few small research projects along the way:
- Analyzing the sentiment of 2017 State of the City speeches
- Figuring out how often mayors references a deity in their speeches
- And more to come!
Feel free to contribute speeches, edits, or analysis.
