To feed my continuing interest in behavioral economics, I've decided to dig deeper into data mining. It seems that every researcher uses data mining in some way. I'm taking a course in statistical approaches to natural language processing. It is definitely improving my understanding of the difficulties involved in analyzing the data. I also hope to get a few books on the subject soon.
It seems that real estate data is quite the gem of the behavioral economics world. I guess because it is free and easily accessible, it gets more interest, much like blogs for the search community.
Probably the best thing to do would be start with a question. What do I want to know about the world? And then start finding the right ways to answer it. I'm not sure what my question will be. Stay tuned. In the mean time, I wonder where you find real estate data...
