Home Connectivity in Pakistan by Region

This data visualization shows the prevalence of household ownership of different items within the main regions of Pakistan. It begins to tell the story of what communications and transportation options are available to the average home depending on the region, based on 2016 household surveys. Each value is out of 100, referring to the percentage of respondents in 2016 who satisfy that requirement.

Ownership by Region within Pakistan

For this assignment, I registered with the ASER (Annual Status of Education Report) of Pakistan in order to access their 2016 Household Survey Data. The data set includes 65,536 entries from Punjab (16580), Azad Jammu and Kashmir (5978), Balochistan (18936), Federally Administered Tribal Areas (5396), Gilgit-Baltistan (4105), Sindh (14247), and Islamabad (292). I used the sort function to quickly retrieve the number of surveys conducted in each region, which is shown in the previous sentence. Each survey asks a variety of questions. I chose to focus on whether the residents own the home they live in, if they are connected to electricity, if a mobile phone is owned, if a computer is owned, and if motorcycle is owned. I used the filter function, by region, to find a quantity for each. I divided this quantity by the total number of respondents per region, and used this data in the visualizations seen here. You must register to access this public data set so I uploaded it on blackboard with this blog post link for verification. Link to data access: http://aserpakistan.org/index.php?func=aser_raw_data
