About Project

This team-based project looks into a variety of questions surrounding African development and economics using database systems, such as why Africa's Real GDP growth rate suddenly declined after years of steady growth and if there is a correlation between region of residence and citizen happiness. Our research has provided several insights into possible answers for these questions. For instance, the results of our research indicated that that African citizens of countries in the MENA region seem to be much happier than those in Sub-Saharan Africa.

To do this, our team compiled a plethora of data and used Sqlite3 to organize it and store it. Additionally, the project features a text-based interface developed in Python that can interact with the database.
