>From the https://data.sfgov.org/ I wanted to look at the SF311 data with
1) See if the response time between reports made and report closes varies
geographically within the city. I don't know any objective C, but was
thinking about massaging the data with python. That sounds quite doable.
2) looking at if reporting rates vary geographically in the City. As if
I am asking, are there some neighborhoods characterized by squeaky wheels
and others that hardly bother to report? Unfortunately I''m conceptually
stuck at the issue, how do I distinguish between the case that says are
less reports in a geography because there are less issues, and the theory
that says a neighborhood gets more services because the people there are
more astute or involved in raising their issues.
Thanks for the interest.
