For our project, we mashed together data on energy consumption, internet usage, and average happiness for 15 countries. We believed that this data could be correlated and may have an impact on the happiness of countries. The visualization we created was effective at displaying the three types of information, but in the end, we found that there was no correlation between any of the data. This analysis leads to the question, “Does technology make people happy?”
