Hello world! It’s been a long time since I updated this blog. Now seems like a good time.
I finally registered for Tableau Public, check out my fascinations here. Obviously this is going to be mostly neighborhood / real estate related.
It was kinda fun to go back in to data.seattle.gov to look for treasure again. I started with a list of page visit data for seattle.gov. I was positively impressed to see that Socrata, a local business, now supplies a direct OData streaming on the site!
I was not surprised to see that there is a slight negative correlation between median unique page view to median bounce rate. If I go on the site and open one of the links, read it for the first time, my view would be counted as a unique view. I would insinuate that the more unique views a page gets, the higher chance that a viewer is actually reading the page (and not bouncing, which is leaving the page within 2-3 seconds).
From this scatter plot, I learned that people probably dont get their school information here – the “major-institutions-and-school” page groups has very low unique views but a ~45% bounce rate. It also appears that the ‘equitable-outreach-and-engagement” gets most the attention here, pretty high unique views and very low bounce rate. Curious? Let’s give them some more page views here.
