The UNAIDS Organization is an entity of the United Nations that looks to reduce the transmission of AIDS and provide resources to those currently affected by the disease. The following data set contains information on the number of those affected by the disease, new cases of the disease being reported, and AIDS-related deaths for a large set of countries over the course of 1990 - 2015.
Additionally, some of the functions can return a sample of the Big Data using an extra argument. If you use this sampled Big Data, it may be much faster. When you are sure your code is correct, you can remove the argument to use the full dataset.
importaids# These may be slow!list_of_report=aids.get_reports(test=True)
Returns aids reports from the dataset.
Optional argument to control whether ALL or SOME of the data is returned for this function. This makes it much easier to develop and test your code, only using a large (slow) amount of data when you are ready.
