Crafting a Data Story: U.S. Government Shutdown Impact
Brian Xu, Data Scientist, LinkedIn
Feverish coding and fancy statistical techniques to generate data is just one aspect of a data scientist’s job, constructing a narrative and communicating results to be accessible to non-technical audiences are just as important! This session will explore how to craft a data story through the lens of a LinkedIn analysis evaluating the impact of the recent U.S. government shutdown, which was covered by media such as the Wall Street Journal and Washington Post.
