Free Webcast: “Big Data” in US History, Exploring the 1790 US Census

NOTE: This fun review of "big data" was inspired by a recent presentation I gave on behalf of Tableau Software at the Big Data Conference in Chicago. You can find the 1st part of this 3 part webcast here, "Performance to Cost Index & my personal history with “Big Data”. Part 3 is here, “Big Data” on your laptop, fast, informative and at your command.

In this presentation, I share a review of the original big data in US history, the 1790 US Census. Some surprises are found along the way, including data quality issues in the Census reports and a surprising number of US states with more men than women, in spite of the heavy losses in The American Revolutionary War!
