In this chapter, you will use a simple (publicly available) data set obtained from the data.world called: US News Universities Rankings 2017 edition. You will learn to use the following Bash commands while dealing with a csv file containing the US university ranks 2017:

  • head — output the first part of files
  • tail — opposite to head 
  • cat — concatenate and print files
  • sort — sort file contents
  • uniq — remove duplicate entries

From this data, using Bash we will explore different features and finally find an interesting fact about the correlation of tuition fees and uni rank.
