U.S. 2010 Census Population dataset + Total Students in U.S. Medical School

I used 2010 Census population dataset to see if each states have similar patterns. Both these two maps have shockingly similar ratio. I believe that the more populated states receive more government/federal aids to conduct research and expand their programs even further.

In general, there are more Southern US Medical Students then Western US Medical Students. There are many factors: 1) African-American/Black Friendly Schools, 2) Well Established African-American/Black Society and Cultures. Related Articles




There are many ways to visualize the data. Data Visualization help people understand the significance of data by placing it in a visual context. It allowed me to think critically how am I going to convey the users with easy understand of this data. I would like to try different tools such as Tableau and Unity 3D for my next Data Visualization project.
