This is a really simple project. The US Social Security Administration collects statistics on the most common baby names. This data is available for every year since 1879 at this URL: [url removed, login to view] You can get the 1000 most common names for both boys and girls for every year
I would like to have a single delimited text file that contains the 1000 most common names for both boys and girls for every year since 1879 until 2009. Format should be as follows:
Column A: Year
Column B: Name
Column C: Popularity rank
Both boy and girl names can go in column B. There is no need to separate. Should be a simple piece of code to write and shouldn't take more than an hour for the right person.
