Masculinity Survey

Brief

Objective

Overview

This project is slightly different than others you have encountered thus far on Codecademy. Instead of a step-by-step tutorial, this project contains a series of open-ended requirements which describe the project you’ll be building. There are many possible ways to correctly fulfill all of these requirements, and you should expect to use the internet, Codecademy, and other resources when you encounter a problem that you cannot easily solve.

Project Goals

In this project, we will be investigating the way people think about masculinity by applying the k-means algorithm to data from FiveThirtyEight. FiveThirtyEight is a popular website known for its use of statistical analysis in many of its stories.

Setup Instructions

You have two options of completing this assignment. Either here, within Codecademy’s output terminal, or on your own, in case you’re more comfortable using a Jupyter notebook.

If you choose to do this project on your computer instead of Codecademy, you can download what you’ll need by clicking the “Download” button below. If you need help setting up your computer, be sure to check out our setup guides:

Open Masculinity_Survey.ipynb and follow the steps in the Jupyter Notebook. If you get stuck, you can look at Masculinity_Survey_Solution.ipynb for the answer.
