Campaign Expenditures

Analyzing campaign spending data to support the non-profit investigative journalism organization ProPublica.

The goal of the project is to promote the development of safer roads by identifying areas of high risk in a city's road network. It seeks to support the decision-making of transportation departments in 3 ways:

Identify high risk locations - which roads in the network represent the greatest risk of crashes?

Explain the contributing factors of risk - what are the features, patterns and trends that result in a location having elevated risk?

Assess the impact of intervention - what is the effect of a past or planned intervention on the risk of crashes?
