Project Description


Online resource for school dental awareness and enrollment.


Data Story


The data came from two sources, Education Counts (MoE) website and as a direct extract from the Northland DHB. Two data tables were taken form MoE which provided the locational, descriptive, and student body population for all schools in Northland, while the NDHB provided the counts of students enrolled with a dentist. The data was pulled into an R project, where the summary, merging, and analysis of tables was performed. The resulting table was then converted to JSON where the coding team used AWS Quicksight and JavaScript to do further analysis and visualisation.
