Understanding the prevalence of depression among Americans is vital for shaping public health initiatives and fostering empathy. This understanding becomes even more important when you see there are differences in reporting trends by age. Leveraging data from the Census Bureau’s Household Pulse Survey, this project explores the mental health landscape in our society for multiple age groups. To understand some of the differences among sub populations, you are able to filter the data by the region someone lives in.
To gather the data, I utilized a Python script to scrape the data from the Census Bureau’s FTP and visualized the data through Tableau.
