Number of Total Summer Olympic Gold Medals
This searchable data set is of every country that participates in the summer olympics and the number of total gold medals they have won. This data could be helpful for people who are trying to research the olympics and people who are curious about which countries typically win and which countries typically don’t win. It is data that people would most likely want to search for a specific country and then compare to another countries. For example I can search for “United States” and I can see that we have won 2088 total gold medals in the summer olympics. If I wanted to compare it with China, I could search and see that they only have 208 total gold medals. This data makes for interesting comparisons, and then you can dig deeper to learn about specific years of competition and athletes that have competed.
