Bessie Liu Data Sketch 3


In a state that is 93% white, it is unsurprising that the largest death amount is the white population. What intrigues me is the death of a large number of people whose race is unknown. I would be eager to know why the race data is uncategorized, was it poor data collection? Were people unwilling to identify their family members’ race? I would look more deeply into exactly where the most amount of deaths occurred for these uncategorized races – is there a specific demographic of people who live in the area? Who were the hospitals involved?
