Analyzing the sinking of the Titanic – Data Analysis with Python (Course V)
Overview of the dataset
The sinking of the Titanic is one of the most infamous shipwrecks in history.
On April 15, 1912, during her maiden voyage, the widely considered “unsinkable” RMS Titanic sank after colliding with an iceberg. Unfortunately, there weren’t enough lifeboats for everyone on board, resulting in the death of 1502 out of 2224 passengers and crew.
While there was some element of luck involved in surviving, it seems some groups of people were more likely to survive than others. The train.csv file contains the data of the passengers who were on that ship including the information of whether they survived the sinking or not.
