The Story of Dr Ignaz Semmelweis - “Savior of Mothers”
This sample PowerBI workbook tells the real story of Dr Ignaz Semmelweis. Year is 1846, Dr Semmelweis begins his 3 year work at Vienna Hospital maternity clinic, and is immediately disturbed with the high incidence of puerperal fever (also known as "childbed fever") in Vienna Hospital,causing extremely high maternal mortality between 1823-1850.
Semmelweis was one of the first data “detectives” of our time, using data and statistics to test his hypothesis and theories.
This workbook allows you to explore the data collected by Semmelweis through those years and shows typical exploratory patterns we can use to hint on important information and possible causes from observational time series data.
