Rows: 38
Overview Game of Thrones is a hit fantasy tv show based on the equally famous book series "A Song of Fire and Ice" by George RR Martin. The show is well known for its vastly complicated political landscape, large number of characters, and its frequent character deaths. Data Sources This dataset combines three sources of data, all of which are based on information from the book series. Firstly, there is battles.csv which contains Chris Albon's "The War of the Five Kings" Dataset, which can be found here:https://github.com/chrisalbon/war_of_the_five_kings_dataset . Its a great collection of all of the battles in the series. Secondly we have character-deaths.csv from Erin Pierce and Ben Kahle. This dataset was created as a part of their Bayesian Survival Analysis which can be found here: http://allendowney.blogspot.com/2015/03/bayesian-survival-analysis-for-game-of.html Finally we have a more comprehensive character dataset with character-predictions.csv. This comes from the team at A Song of Ice and Data who scraped it from http://awoiaf.westeros.org/ . It also includes their predictions on which character will die, the methodology of which can be found here: https://got.show/machine-learning-algorithm-predicts-death-game-of-thrones What insights about the complicated political landscape of this fantasy world can you find in this data? Of course, it goes without saying that this dataset contains spoilers ;) Contributed by Myles O'Neill from Kaggle

Participants were 122 individuals from a fire department. The total number of employees at the fire department were 184 people. Participants were at all levels of the organization. The data includes both cultural measures from O'Reilly, Chapman, and Caldwell (1991) and a network analysis where participants were asked to identify up to five individuals they prefer to turn to for work related advice. Participants were given the full list of values from the O'Reilly et al (1991) paper and asked to identify the most import two values, then the most important four values, etc. Just as the sorting methodology in the paper went through. However, the survey was administered online. For the network analysis, the data includes both a betweenness measure and a centrality measure (ndegree). The data was collected 1/15/2014-3/15/2014.
