An Analysis of Monkeypox Demographics

This project will explore some new data about the current monkeypox outbreak.

At first glance, the current outbreak of monkeypox would appear to be disproportionately affecting males, with over 95% of confirmed cases being recorded in such people. The dataset is from, compiling individual case data originally from a number of governmental institutions worldwide. The data was then cleaned up and plotted in a straightforward manner. While it may appear that monkeypox only impacts men, this conclusion doesn’t complement past outbreaks, and is possibly due to deficits in testing.
