In Going Deep with Aaron by AaronLeave a Comment

Seth Stephens-Davidowitz has used data from the internet — particularly Google searches — to get new insights into the human psyche.  

Seth has used Google searches to measure racism, self-induced abortion, depression, child abuse, hateful mobs, the science of humor, sexual preference, anxiety, son preference, and sexual insecurity, among many other topics.  

His book, Everybody Lies, describes his research and argues for social scientists to make greater use of internet data. It was a New York Times bestseller and received widespread media attention.
