About Pulse of the Land

Pulse of the Land tracks topics and sentiment across cities and states in the USA based on posts from over 280 city and state subreddits with a minimum membership of 1,000 and population over 50,000. It also takes into account population and income data from the census. The overall score listed for each location ranges from 50 to 100, similar to what one might receive in school and is based on a custom metric developed using weighted factors for income, population and sentiment. For more information, check out the GitHub repo here.
