NZ Holiday Road Toll Numbers Nat Torkington <email@example.com> @gnat http://nathan.torkington.com Released under the Artistic license 2.0, 3 Jan 2012 Builds a web page with a graph of the holiday road toll numbers, with moving average (and the same again, normalized for population change). I wanted to answer the question "is this year's figure hideously anomalous, or is it within the usual variation?" Sample usage: 01-slurp | 02-htmlize > out.html See http://nathan.torkington.com/blog/2012/01/02/holiday-road-toll/ for more information. Dependencies: * Perl 5 with Text::CSV and List::Util * LWP::Simple * HTML::TableExtract * jqPlot (http://jqplot.com, included) Contents: 01-slurp is the Perl script to visit the NZ Transport website, download the HTML table of holiday road fatalities, and extract out the deaths number. It emits a CSV file. 02-htmlize produces HTML from that CSV, using jquery and jqPlot. out.html is sample output. deaths.csv is sample output of 01-slurp deaths.numbers is Apple Numbers spreadsheet of the deaths.csv data, with chart, as a prototype of what I wanted to create. population.csv is population history of NZ, taken from http://www.stats.govt.nz/browse_for_stats/population/estimates_and_projections/historical-population-tables.aspx They provide it in Excel format, so I've extracted the relevant info as a CSV. Would love to automate it, but can't be bothered messing around with automatedly pulling data from Excel files. js/ contains jQuery and jqPlot
