Gimme, gimme that GOOD data...wind direction + air quality in Chicago

I'm working on a little side project mashing up some interesting data to get a better historical picture of some city-level decisions around urban planning. And I'm trying to chase down two types of data (the only two categories that have eluded me thus far.) [more inside]

I just have my suspicions, is all

I'm looking for a relatively fine-grained source of health and environmental data for Contra Costa County, CA. County-by-county is no good, and even city-by-city isn't that great. I'd like to see it by block if possible (zip code would be useful). Anything that fine-grained would be fine: cancer rates, mortality rates, air quality, etc. [more inside]

Concrete steps from academic economics into data science/management

I would like a job that allows me to write programs or scripts for data processing/analysis. I am trying to understand what a move from academic economics to data-science/management would involve for me in terms of specific steps and goals. What would I need to learn, and what should I prioritise learning? Should I study at home or take a course? When (i.e. after how much or what sort of study/self-study etc) should one think about actually applying for those sorts of jobs? [more inside]

Mac disk utility problem - data missing

Never thought I would be posting a question along these lines, but here we go. So I had an external hard disk with two partitions. One NTFS and one HFS+. The NTFS partition was empty. I wanted to use the NTFS partition with Time Machine so I used Disk Utility to reformat it HFS+. When the format had completed, yes, the NTFS partition was now HFS+ BUT the other partition had disappeared. When I looked at it in disk utility it had a name like "disk32s". [more inside]

Recommendations for Irish SIM card for American

I will be traveling to Dublin, Ireland frequently in the next 6 mos - year and I need to find an appropriate SIM vendor. I have done a ton of research but I am still hamstrung in terms of concrete advice. Here is what I know: I have unlocked my old iPhone 4 for this purpose. My husband and I have AT&T for our stateside smartphone service. My mother has Verizon (my preschooler will be with her). I will use the phone to call my husband and daughter nightly (probably two separate calls) and I will want some data coverage for navigation, texting, etc. I would prefer not to initiate any kind of contract until after the first trip. Any recommendations? TIA.

What does the Target data breech actually mean to me?

I shopped at Target twice during the period last year that their customer data was compromised. I used my debit card once (which, ugh, I never shop with, but I must have needed cash back), and my credit card once. And apparently other information, like home and e-mail addresses, was also taken. How concerned should I really be, and how much effort should I put into changing card numbers and monitoring my own information? [more inside]

Annual lists of bestselling laptop and desktop computer models?

I'm looking to gather data on the top selling laptop and desktop models for each year (preferably over the past 20 years and with total units sold each year in U.S. and in world). Does anyone know of a source or would be able to point me in the direction of one? Is there an industry newsletter? Ideally, I want something like "2003's Top 10 Bestselling Laptops: 1) Gateway 450: X million sold; 2) Dell Inspiron 8500: x million sold" etc, but I'm not too picky, any leads would be better than what I got now.

How can I get Excel to create multiple averages from a single table?

I have a table of data that I need to average, but I need to come up with averages using multiple different rows. For example average A=row 1, row 2, row 4: Average B= row 1, row 2, row 3: Average C= row 2, row 3. I would like to add a column that has the names of each average I need, (A, B, C) and then let excel average them based on which set they belong to. I have been looking around at other excel related forums, but I am not sure what this process is called, so I don't know how to find it. Right now I have been copying rows for each time they show up in a set I need averaged. It would be nicer to have column that says, this row belongs to set A and C, next one belongs to set A, B, and C.
