Statistically analyze the color of the underwear worn by MIT students


There is no way to know what color underwear a college student is wearing and what color underwear is popular. However, MIT girls gather data from "self-declaration" and statistically investigate and present the color of underwear worn by MIT students.

At MIT, there is a mailing list for each student dormitory, and it is used as a communication tool between students who are now at the height of SNS. This mailing list seems to be possible for students living in the same dormitory as well as MIT students who do not live in other dormitories or dormitories. Although it is a mailing list of MIT that has been loved since long ago, in 2009 a student wants to see the contents of the mail "This mail has the color of the underwear I am currently on" is written, really There is an event that I wrote the color of my self-reported underwear, and since that time, it seems that the custom that the student could write the color of the underwear that is currently in it.

Using this unique convention to make statistics data on the color of MIT student underwear goes to MITLydia. Mr. Lydia is the birthplace of self self-assessment e-mail of underwear colorBurton ConnerIt is said that she lives in a girls' dormitory, one day, I saved all the mail data that I received to myself on my PC and gathered the color of my self-reported underwear as data.

Of course, because the color of the underwear is self-reported, it is not certain whether the person who sent the mail really wore the color underwear, but the color of underwear worn by MIT students under self-reporting rule When it is classified by a pie chart, it seems to be as follows.
