Crunching the wedding numbers

Posted to Statistical Visualization  |  Tags:  |  Nathan Yau

Weddings are special events where friends and family come together to celebrate, and we encapsulate them in their special day. What if you looked at weddings over time though? Todd Schneider provides a view into wedding announcements in The New York Times in Wedding Crunchers, and although the announcements are mostly New York-based, you get a peek into events and social trends. Simply enter terms or phrases and see the trends over time.

Be sure to check out Schneider’s detailed description and highlights of the data. [Thanks, Todd]
