D.C. is the Data Science Capital of the U.S.

by Chris Conlan

... at least according to Google Search Trends it is. Google places Washington D.C. first in the country for interest in data science out of all 50 U.S. states.

We can only speculate what gave us this score.

  • Is it our thriving EdTech industry?
  • Is it biostatistics at NIH and NCI?
  • Or the Federal Government's demand for data analytics work?

It's probably a mix of the above.
