Lab 3 Notes

September 30, 2009

This lab was very frustrating. The state I chose was Florida, it has to many counties. I should have chosen a state with less counties. The data from the internet is so messed up, I did not like converting all of these. My data for 1900 to 1990 was some what ok, it was already a text file so I did not really have to change much. It was already in text width and I just had to move the different columns. 

The data for 2000 and 2008 was very frustrating a messed up. For the 2000 data I had to type in the rest of the population numbers because all of them got cut off. The 2008 data was the same way except the population was on another line so I had to move all those up to line next to the counties. I’m just glad I did not have to do this for the entire United States.

I could not image having to do that to every state in the United States. It would take me a very long time to do. It would probably give me a big headache.
