While the prelims are raging on (so vote for your least favorite track now!), there’s something that’s near and dear to my heart: stats. Everybody loves stats. Not everyone loves cleaning it up, but hey, someone’s got to do the dirty work. But once the data gets cleaned up, there’s a lot of valuable information to be had and some diamonds that emerge as a result.
One of the things I said I’d do is release the nominations and tabulations in all their glory, both in the form of RAW data and the form in which I’ve cleaned it up and made it a bit more presentable. I figure there’s enough of you stats wizards/data analysts out there who like to have a field day with this kind of stuff (anime music of all things?) and wouldn’t mind having the data handy to run whatever analyses suit your fancy. So without further ado:
I haven’t gone in to examine this data beyond a cursory analysis (mostly doing my damnedest to catch all of the duplicate entries. If I miss a few, just let me know somehow, some way). May this sheet validate your thoughts on how anime fans look at anime music or have it confirm your worst fears about recency bias and whatnot. Either way, have fun and feel free to share whatever findings emerge from this monster of a spreadsheet!
