To begin understanding potential gaps between higher education and industry demand within the field of data science, it was necessary to gather position postings and curriculum data. The position postings were gathered from 5/19/2018 to 5/21/2018, keying from major United States cities with populations greater than 250,000. The curriculum data was gathered from higher education institutions that are advertising a "Data Science Initiative," a relatively new construct amongst institutions. The goal was to evaluate these data sets to understand alignment and gaps between industry demand and higher education offerings.
