Border City Data: ETL Workshop with 2019 Election Data
Thursday, September 30th @ 6:30 PM Facebook | Meetup | Linkedin | Register

Using publicly available data from Elections Canada, Doug Sartori has created a database of the 2019 federal election results that can provide answers to complex questions.
Thanks to ETL (and open data sources), this DB is able to tell us:
  • which races were won by 5% or less
  • which poll was the best in the country for each party
  • how large the margin of victory was in each riding
In this one-hour workshop, Doug will not only give answers to these questions, he will walk through the process used to create this database, providing usable tips and advice along the way.
