2021-04-02 Hayfever

My dad and I were talking about allergies and I decided to look at some data: when did I post about hayfever on this blog?

I guess there are two peaks, and just on time, today is the day where I take my anti-histamine to fight off the pollen. I felt it in my throat for a few days, but several times today my eyes were itching and my nose was running, making it hard to focus, or do anything at all, really.

As an amateur data analyst, I don’t think you have two peaks. I think you have a normal distribution centered on April and you are missing data points from June. Maybe something happens in June that makes you less likely to write about it (perhaps it is your preferred holiday period?), or simply you have too few points to draw strong conclusions

A histogram by weeks could strengthen or disprove my previous comment 🙂
