I started The Puerto Rico Data Lab in late October 2017 as a reaction to Hurricane Maria’s impact on the island. Since then, I have used a variety of datasets, data mining methodologies and data visualization tools to explore Puerto Rico’s current challenges and future opportunities. Ultimately, the Puerto Rico Data Lab hopes to raise questions and encourage critical dialogue about:
1. Puerto Rico’s post-Hurricane Maria Recovery Efforts
2. The causes and consequences of the island’s debt crisis.
3. Puerto Rico’s political dynamics and its evolving relationship with the U.S. federal government.
