Be Better with Data, Do Better with Data. My Response to #StopAsianHate Campaign.

Show Notes

From Mercedes Benz USA to Cox Automotive to Big Media, the #StopAsianHate campaign has forced many to speak out against the anti-Asian sentiment that has been permeating in our culture. In particular, there was a report that many have cited to support the anti-Asian sentiment, Stop AAPI Hate National Report. Upon scrutinizing and analyzing the data, it is very incomplete and certainly not a report that we should be basing policy or even organizational decisions on. The data is a good starting point, and we need the proficiency and competency of data scientists to help discern what is important, what is not important, and what are we missing. 

If indeed there is an anti-Asian sentiment in the United States (and beyond), then we need to raise the bar of the data collection process. We need to improve the surveys to produce more accurate results. We need to collaborate with other entities and data sets to produce more meaningful data.

Be better with data. Do better with data. So we can make better decisions.

EPISODE NOTES Book Gridlock: Why We're Stuck In Traffic And What To Do About It by Randal O'Toole Passage 1: Smart growth is based on the premise that Americans need to drive less to reduce congestion, energy consumption, and environmental impacts. To reduce driving, the vision calls for spending more money on urban transit, intercity rail, and bike/pedestrian facilities. The vision also calls for reducing the average size of lots for single-family homes and increasing the percentage of people who live in multifamily housing or mixed-used developments, both of which are supposed to reduce driving. Passage 2 Efficiency vision is based on the premise that the resources available for transportation improvements are scarce and should be used as effectively as possible. This vision relies on user fees rather than taxes to pay for transportation. Transportation decisions are made by setting goals (sometimes called performance standards) and ranking transportation projects according to their ability to meet those goals. Goals could include congestion relief, energy savings, pollution reduction, and safety. Reducing driving is not a goal but merely one possible means to attaining some of the other goals. The projects that achieve the goals at the lowest cost are selected.
