Google search trends and pathogens

Started June 28, 2021

Abstract or project description

Project 1: "One idea I’ve had for a research project is identifying the correlation between Google search trends (symptoms of E. Coli that are being searched up everyday and where) and E. coli levels in the main water source. Thus far, I have gathered and found data on the E. coli concentration in my local water source being the Chattahoochee River and I would love to be able to go into further analysis of that data by comparing E. coli data to search trends of E. coli symptoms to see if there is a strong correlation between E. coli count to unofficial symptoms in areas that the water source is prevalent. The final goal of this project would essentially be to create a way to predict E. coli cases in Georgia, USA by following the correlation of searched symptoms and E. coli concentration in the river." - also other diseases
