Center for World University Rankings – Kaggle dataset

Kaggle publishes many interesting datasets and one of them was including various world university rankings.
I decided to run a quick analysis of the CWUR data and create a map in R using rworldmap package.

The initial results are here:
cwur_counties_by_universities_in_the_ranking
USA and China outnumber other countries by the number of universities in the CWUR data.

map_cwur_top_100
The map shows that USA by far outnumbers other countries in the top 100 universities according to CWUR.

Here’s the gist:

My latest script for this analysis can be found on Kaggle.
