While it looks like Data.gov may be shutdown, I am still working with Dominic Difranzo on his project on his zip-code search based health information program. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to concentrate on it as much as I would like to due to a very heavy course load, but am I looking into new useful and interesting data sets in the US Department of Health & Human Services Community Health Status Indicators program. The program’s massive dataset provides users with a very wide range of useful data about health on a local level all across America. Currently the health search includes a nice set of statistics surveying given zip codes, but there is an enormous amount of additional data waiting in the CHSI dataset that can really enrich the quality of the the search program. I hope to blog again soon about some of the interesting data points that I find.

Also, before March Break I worked with Bharath Santosh on a project using Facebook’s graph API.
