Movies watched in 2014
Mail   Print   Twitter   Facebook

Last year, my New Year's Resolution was to watch 1,000 movies in a year. The data set provided below is the list of every movie I watched during 2014, along with details of that movie. I was able to accomplish this goal and watch 1,011. I thought it would be interesting to compare the amount of movies I watched per month, to the amount of movies the world record holder with 1,132 movies, Maggie Correa, watched per month. I found this data on http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/world-records/most-films-seen-in-one-year/. Since her final tally was larger than my own, I predict that she will have a higher typical value per month. 

To show the comparision between Maggies' movies and my own, I constructed a side-by-side graph that visually shows how many movies were watched each month. Based on the summary statistics, the typical value for Maggie was 94.3 movies each month, my typical value was 84.25 movies. This means that I watched approximately 10 movies less than she did every month. Based on the box plot below, it can be seen that Maggies' maximum amount per month was higher than mine, and my minimum amount was lower than her. The range for Maggie was 168 movies and mine was 152, meaning she had a larger variation for the amount each month. Considering the time when my movie amount dramatically dropped to just 12 movies a month, it can be assumed that I was experiencing all college has to offer instead of watching movies. I predict that I could have beaten the world record if I had not focused on my studies as much.
