These are all projects I have worked on using the open-source statistical platform R and the graphing package ggplot2.
Open Source Data Set: Inequality Among New York City's Auctioneers in the 1820s
Open Source Graphs: Demographics of Maryland Free Blacks, 1800-1864
- Using quarterly tax returns, this open-source project shares the dataset and the source code of a paper that looks at the income distribution of early nineteenth-century auctioneers and how it fits into larger discussions of the political economy of early nineteenth-century America.
Graphs on Public Opinion in the Middle East Using Freely Available Data
- Using a series of graphs on the demographics of Maryland's free black community, this project shows how flexible R is because it is a programming language. It also shares the code I used to produce the graphs
- I made this series of graphs using freely available data from a joint project of American and Middle Eastern Universities called Arab Barometer. I am no expert in the Middle East, but I can make graphs! Using free data and the R graphing application called ggplot2, I learned a great deal about public opinion the Middle East.
Tableau Public Projects
These are projects I have worked on using the data visualization platform Tableau Public.
Graphs on Indentured Servants and Slaves in Newspaper Ads
- Using for-sale and runaway ads, this series of Tableau Public graphs lets the viewer view and manipulate the graphs from within his or her browser.
These are all datasets that I have compiled and encoded. They are all in Comma-Separate Value (.csv) format.
