How lead levels in 5 Canadian cities compared to those in Flint, Mich.
The directory information on school name, address, and phone number are preliminary data from initial submissions of school level data for At Pew Research Center, we employ many methodologies in our research, depending on the questions we are trying to answer. These methodologies include original analyses of large external datasets, which is what we did here. This was our first use of data from the Google Health API, which is essentially an access point for analyzing large amounts of data about the terms that internet users searched for during a given period.
Our team spent several months making sure we fully understood the data, how it is organized and the best methods for obtaining accurate data returns before we embarked on the Flint study itself. Once we felt confident in the methods, the team extracted the results of the queries across the weeks of this study, took a number of statistical steps to clean the dataset and then began our internal analyses.

For this project, we applied to Google and were given access to the private Google Health API , which provides more granular data than the public Google Trends website. The way the data are returned is not at the user level, but at the individual search query level.
In other words, the unit of analysis is searches, not people. So, for example, when we talk about increases in search activity for personal health-related terms in Michigan, that means searches for those items were a larger portion of all searches in the state of Michigan that week, compared with the prior week. Results can vary quite a bit from query to query based on the sample that is pulled. Then, for each week, we took the average of the 50 samples. The goal of this part of the project was to capture broad media coverage volume over time; it was not to conduct a detailed media content analysis.
Searching for News
To do this, we collected news stories from a sample of local, regional and national news media for the same time range as the Google search data. We included everything that could be identified as being about the Flint water crisis. The identification was a two-step process: First, keyword searches were used to identify and capture any possible related stories.
We wrote about several of them in a post on Medium , but a few key points to keep in mind are that Google Trends measures search activity, not opinion or priority. While search activity often can be linked to interest, it does not indicate positive or negative opinions on the part of the public, or that a search term that returns more results is more important than some other term.
Also, in keyword searches, terms must be exact, which means that every conjugation of a word or combination of words needs to be entered separately. To complete the subscription process, please click the link in the email we just sent you.
