The Dop Index at Why R?

About two weeks ago, we presented the Dop Index at this year’s (virtual) Why R? conference. It was great to have the opportunity to talk about what motivated us to build the index, and how we put it together.

The Dop Index is a price index of South African alcohol products (for those of you who are missing out on our Twitter feed!). This year, alcohol was banned in South Africa under the harsh COVID-19 lockdown restrictions. As a result, the Dop Index tells a rather interesting story!

You can watch the recording of the presentation below. Our talk starts at around 48:38. You can also view the slide deck here.

Thanks very much to organisers of the WhyR? conference for the opportunity to present our work. We had fun!
