I am going through your byte 2 submissions, and as usually I am enjoying the different data sets and analyses tremendously. Here are some highlights:

An exploration of the relationship between rural/urban living and life expectancy which demonstrates very nice use of a variety of charts to highlighting issues with data quality. This assignment stands out as well because of its use of additional data to test the correctness of the data set, and because it is exploring a concrete hypothesis. 

An exploration of traffic deaths, age and substance abuse. This assignment stands out because of its thoroughness in answering a variety of data quality questions, its use of an additional data set to check things, and the careful attention to website design. 

This person explores the first age of marriage in different countries worldwide. What I want to point out about this assignment is the creative approach to presenting the analysis of data quality, which makes use of embedded google slides. Also outstanding about this assignment is the depth of the analysis, and the fact that the data is being modified in response to the findings about issues with missing data.
