In this analysis, we were provided with a data set with COVID-19 data from South Korea.
My teammate, Adam Whalen, and I compared how five different countries did with respect to confirmed cases, deaths, and conducted tests. This comparison showed how countries which tested more, had a lower death rate than the others.
We then compared data from Seoul to data from New York City as both cities have a similar size in area and population. This supported our hypothesis that testing seems to be an essential factor in how well a country (or city) does in coping with COVID-19.
Adam and I were awarded an “Honorable Mention.”
The competition was organized by the Informations Systems department of the David Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah. Domo Inc was the main sponsor and provided the data visualization tool.
