Spring 2022

Mid-Term Project

Release Date: Feb 21st, 2022

Due Date: March 27th, 2022 – 11:59pm MST. No extension will be provided.


Please submit your working R file (“Midterm_LastName_FirstName.R”), the dataset files you used for your analysis, and

the corresponding PDF file with your data manipulation steps and insights learned from the dataset. If the files are not
properly uploaded, points will be deducted from your grade.

There are three datasets available, select your topic on interest and elaborate the visualizations required in the Grading
Scheme Section.

Datasets available in Blackboard

• Dataset 1- FIFA Players

FIFA (video game series) is a soccer video game released annually by Electronic Arts under the EA Sports label. This dataset
contains a full list of the characteristics of the most skilled soccer players in the world. Imagine you are asked to develop

a report summarizing the dataset, what insights can you provide to your stakeholder?

• US-Accidents: A Countrywide Traffic Accident Dataset

“This is a countrywide traffic accident dataset, which covers 49 states of the United States. The data is continuously being
collected from February 2016, using several data providers, including two APIs which provide streaming traffic event data.
These APIs broadcast traffic events captured by a variety of entities, such as the US and state departments of
transportation, law enforcement agencies, traffic cameras, and traffic sensors within the road-networks. Currently, there
are about 3.0 million accident records in this dataset. Check the below descriptions for more detailed information.”
