Farmers’ Market Study

A few months ago I took a look at the USDA dataset on farmers’ market locations (data date: 3/15/2011) as part of some exploratory analysis. I took some time out from client work and book writing to map out the data along with obesity rates.

The results of the farmers’ market analysis are reported over on
Study Finds Three Times More Farmers’ Markets in Areas with the Lowest Obesity Rates.

Remember, There are many factors that affect obesity (see this interactive map we did for Urban Mapping to look at some variables and also this discussion about other factors).
