Client: The Lab at DC

As rodent inspection requests continue to increase after a pandemic-induced spike in rat populations, inspection departments are inundated with requests for treatment. This project explores the spatial patterns of vermin detection to develop a predictive model for estimating the probability of rat detection in a given block of Washington, DC.
