In that post I also began a prototypical data analysis project working my way up through munging of the data. All those steps in (Part 1 of 2) enabled me to begin the analysis and modeling parts of the project.  This post picks up and continues with the data analysis which will culminate in a formal write-up of the data analysis demonstrated here.
