Starter code for all datasets of Data Shop Canton Zurich

Have you ever wished to be able to open any dataset in a data portal with one click and get a fully configured Python Jupyter Notebook or R Markdown file? Like – with all metadata, descriptions, data links, and some starter code?

I set up an experiment to provide exactly this. The repository contains starter code for all CSV data sets (currently 394) that are available in the data shop of the Statistical Office of Canton Zurich.

You’ll find links to preconfigured code files so that you immediately can start analyzing the data with R or Python.

The Jupyter Notebooks can be opened directly in Google Colab too.

Feedback is always very welcome. Let me know if you have ideas to improve or expand this.
