Dataset: movie body counts


If you’re planning to do some cool dataviz or data-analysis and you’re looking for dataset you should have a look at this. It’s a dataset of the number of people who die in a movie.

The data comes from Movie Body Counts, a forum where users collect on-screen body counts for a selection of films and the characters and actors who appear in these films. The dataset currently contains counts for 545 films from 1949 to 2013, which is a very small sample of all the films produced in this time frame.
