Data Collection

The final data collection process has been converted into a single Python script. This script downloads the raw data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and Indiana Research Business Center directly. After the raw data is downloaded, the large national datasets are loaded into the Pandas statistical modeling library for filtering and processing. The dataset is brought down to the small subset of Georgia's Six top metropolitan areas (MSAs), and the statewide averages.

The current version of the script is located on GitHub at:
