Gender neutral names are names that tend to be given to both girls and boys. I will be looking at this interesting subset of names and try to answer some questions:
- What have historically been the most gender neutral baby names?
- How do these names behave over time?
The data for the analysis below comes from the Social Secutiy Administration. You can find the data here.
