A Thanksgiving without Salad
The CDC just recently recalled ALL of the romaine lettuce only one day before Thanksgiving due to a massive E. Coli outbreak linked to lettuce.
So what? Who eats salad anyways?
The west! That’s who.
It just so happens that the week before I had made some applicable Thanksgiving data visualizations using Altair and Geopandas.
Using a “Thanksgiving Customs” survey dataset from this FiveThirtyEight article and recreated the data analysis used to determine which sides were most disproportionately common.
So what is the next most common thing to eat instead?
I enjoy Thanksgiving, and so I decided to revisit this analysis sans vegitable salads. Feel free to cruise through my collab notebook if your curious how I used Geopandas and Altair to make my visualization.
The suprising result?
You can take the lettuce but you can’t take our (fruit) salad!
