I’m Alex Albright and I’m an economist who enjoys asking questions and exploring answers with data. Like Florence Nightingale, “whenever I am infuriated, I revenge myself with a new diagram.”

This blog, The Little Dataset That Could, functions as an informal outlet for my curiosities and coding (mis)adventures. While academic journals have low paper acceptance rates, it turns out a blog you run yourself will publish 100% of your data visualizations and musings.

Looking for toy data or code snippets? I catalog the data and code for my blog projects here.

I always enjoy connecting with people about random datasets, pretty graphs, R, etc. Feel free to get in touch via email (alex@albrightalex.com) or bird app (@allbriteallday).

You can learn about my academic research projects on my professional website here.
