In this "Challenge" session, I'm asking you to apply what you learned in LAD Module 6 and in both Show & Tell 6 - Safe Relationships and Census Data.

The data is included in the Challenge6 zip file which you can download and unzip. If you already downloaded this data for "Show & Tell" you don't need to download it again.
