Police budgets and crimes data layered with SES has been a thing I’ve tinkered with on and off for a year. My city makes line-by-line crime incidence data available via a public portal, definitely recommend checking out what’s available in your area.

Thru doing the analysis, figured out our city spends 35% of our budget on the police and (best I can tell after cleaning that awful dataset) it has not led to a reduction in crime. Meanwhile everyone complains about roads being in disrepair and taxes being high. Over a third of our entire city budget goes to the police! No wonder our roads are in disrepair!

I’ve recently used my analysis to be a nuisance at city council committee meetings as they are negotiating police contracts. YMMV.


In the past few weeks I’ve been hearing about how women are getting many more advanced degrees than men. I’d really be interested to see how the return on investment shakes out between the sexes. I have a masters degree, but I’m struggling to get to the next level and get a management job. There weren’t many women in my masters cohort, but from my perspective it seems like the men are more able to capitalize on the advanced degree. I’m currently working for a manager with less experience, education and aptitude for the job. It’s frustrating to see that women are still at such a disadvantage. If I could find a good public dataset on wages including educational attainment and gender I’d like to do that analysis.


Wow. Would love to break this down by industry.

I received an offer from IBM Bangalore. However I saw openings at my preferred location Kochi only after the interviews. I called the HR after getting their point of contact mail and I asked if it's possible to switch. They said I'm already tagged to a project and that they'll check from their end if it can be done.

Anyone knows the chances of location being changed after receiving the offer and getting tagged to a project?

I have not yet accepted the offer.

There is a ethical issue with the Nagarro interview process. Why don't Nagarro make the job interviews aligned to the same level of client interviews. Client interviews in Nagarro is tougher than job interviews. This way Nagarro is increasing the bench strength but then putting extra pressure on the candidates in to find a project. Keep the same standard of the interview for both job and client. This way both will be in a good state of mind.
