This Ruby script parses the dataset from https://catalog.data.gov/dataset/baby-names-from-social-security-card-applications-data-by-state-and-district-of- to find the top name for each sex/year/state permutation. The result is a .csv with a row for each year/sex/top name combination. Be sure to replace the path on line 7 with your local path.

require 'csv'
year = 1910
CSV.open("stateNamesParsed.csv", "ab") do |csv|
Dir.glob('PATH/*.TXT') do |file|
next if file == '.' or file == '..'
File.open(file).readlines.each do |line|
array = line.split(',')
You can’t perform that action at this time.
