Description

Russia leads the world in the death age gap with Russian women outliving their male comrades by almost 14 years. In this presentation we demonstrate scraping web pages to augment Mathematica's CountryData with a goal of identifying explanatory variables and models to explain the global death age gap distribution. Along the way, we also show how to handle missing data elements, correlated variables, etc.--in other words, the realities of real-world data.
