Accessing the World Bank Data APIs in Python, R, Ruby & Stata

Accessing the World Bank Data APIs in Python, R, Ruby & Stata | Data Science | Scoop.it
Developers, analysts and researchers often use our data through the APIs we provide. We’ve written about accessing World Bank data in Stata in the past, but I’m going to take a moment to survey the other language-specific libraries that I know of.

Data are or data is?

Data are or data is? | Data Science | Scoop.it
Is it singular or plural? It's a word we use every day here on the Datablog - but are we getting it completely wrong?

Yes, that's exactly the question I've been struggling with.

How do you say "data"?

 

I only ask because it's a contentious issue. Along with split infinitives, getting this one wrong offends and delights in equal measure. And, as we write about data every day, we're either getting it very wrong or very right.

The Wall Street Journal has just published this blog post, in which it finally decides to move away from data "are", saying:

Most style guides and dictionaries have come to accept the use of the noun data with either singular or plural verbs, and we hereby join the majority.

As usage has evolved from the word's origin as the Latin plural of datum, singular verbs now are often used to refer to collections of information: Little data is available to support the conclusions.

Otherwise, generally continue to use the plural: Data are still being collected.

When we asked the question a couple of years ago, loads of you debated it in a much-polarised manner on Twitter.

@jhugman Data is plural. Unsure the correct "datum point" will catch on though. Having referenda about latin declentions belong in musea.

@mkdDCC No to datum. We need to relax about the data is/are thing. It may not be good Latin, but we're not speaking Latin.
