@PunkDado thanks for the dataset! a couple of questions... I assume country_citizen_fcc_sd is people who use FCC as a resource, what's country_citizen_fcc then? Are these two rows for 2017 survey? There is a slight difference in the number of countries participating in 2016 and 2017 surveys as compared to what's mentioned in these articles https://medium.freecodecamp.com/we-asked-15-000-people-who-they-are-and-how-theyre-learning-to-code-4104e29b2781 and https://medium.freecodecamp.com/we-asked-20-000-people-who-they-are-and-how-theyre-learning-to-code-fff5d668969

@PunkDado maybe you could make the rows/ columns names a little more explanatory

Apart form the % drop in the number of US folks (38 to 30, which could also be attributed to increase in the number of non-US countries) there is an actual drop in the absolute number from 2016 to 2017 (5976 to 5480, a drop of around 9%)
@PunkDado Also, sorry got a little confused...is this sub-dataset of people who just participated in the FCC surveys or people who participated in the survey + use FCC as a resource?
breaking up the datasets like this really seems helpful. Can I do this thing (dataset -> subdatasets) using just d3/js or would it be easier for me to pick up R if I want to create the sub-datasets?

@satenndrra u are right. I didn't have time to make a data dictionary. Names are not very clear.

Everything is much better, I won't be able to reply for a little while but I'm doing well.
I'd explain more but it's a little too long winded for this channel haha. Soldier on guys and gals.
