NICAR23 Introduction to Python for data analysis - pre-registered attendees only

You must be logged in to purchase this item.


Thursday, March 2, 2:15 - 5:45 p.m. 

Cost: $40

Instructors: Sahana Jayaraman and Caitlin McGlade, Arizona Republic


Caitlin McGlade and Sahana Jayaraman will guide you through using Python to find stories in data. We will use Jupyter Notebooks to execute commands, a popular opensource tool commonly used to explore data tables and organize code.

You’ll learn:

  • How to pull data from both a CSV saved locally on your computer and directly from a website
  • How to find “the most” or “the least” by sorting
  • How to isolate or exclude variables with filtering
  • How to compare variables with groupbys
  • How to merge datasets

This session would be good for people who have crunched numbers in Excel, or understand the concept of filtering, sorting and pivot tables /groupbys through other programs, and want to start analyzing data with Python so their work is more easily reproducible. Also for those who have tried a little Python before and couldn’t get the hang of it but want to keep trying.

Preregistration is required and seating is limited.
