I was recently made aware of this great article by Alexis C. Madrigal, senior editor at the Atlantic. Although the underlying analysis he performs is relatively straightforward, it is more the fact that he actually thought of doing it…and went through with it! It is a relatively long read for an article but worth a read in my opinion.

I am currently doing something quite similar analyzing MTA traffic data released by New York City, and hope to show the results here soon.
