  • data All of the data sources used in the analysis
  • tableau the tableau workbooks used in the analysis. The workbooks and resulting dashboards can also be viewed on my Tableau Public page:

###File Descriptions

  • ####code
  • The main routine for combining and cleaning the data sets used in this analysis. There are no input arguments, and it contains just a few simple commands using the pandas and re libraries. Some examples are shown below.
    • To extract the data from the US Energy Information Administration used in the creation of the electricRatesByState201411.twb Tableau workbook:
import electricPrice as ep
dfr = ep.getEiaRates()

where dfe is a pandas DataFrame containing the entirety of the Table 5.06 B excel spreadsheet from the US EIA monthly reports.

- To read in the population data from the US Census Bureau that is in csv format as a pandas DataFrame:
import electricPrice as ep
dfp = ep.getUscbData()
