Cost of Taxis in Bamako (2018)

Donaldson, Coleman

This dataset is a list of 60 taxi rides taken by me (Coleman Donaldson) in Bamako during research fieldwork in Bamako in April-May 2018 and November 2018.

Each datapoint is for the negotiated cost of taxi rides that I took throughout Bamako. The estimated distance was calculated by doing a Google Maps search for directions between the start and end destination. In cases in which multiple routes were suggested, I selected the distance that most closely mirrored the route that I recall us taking.

The shareable version of the dataset is "taxis.csv". In this version, I have stripped out identifying information related to exact start and end destination as well as the exact date of the trips.
