Measurement (0-250) of racial animus
Professor Seth Stephens-Davidowitz studies the level of racial animus across different areas in America by measuring the percent of Google search queries that include racially charged language. A measurement, Animus, is derived from his algorithm and is scaled to be between 0 (low racial animus) and 250 (high racial animus). The dataset includes those values along with demographic information about each media market.
