To bring the people of California their five favorite sports, it was first important to consider both Google search volume data and social media sentiment data for each sport. 

Giving each of ten different sports a value for each of these two factors, we ranked them accordingly. From here, each California sport was assigned an index score between 0-1, relative to their ranked position, for each of the two factors. 

By combining the two index scores, we were able to give each sport a score between 0-2 to find the top five across California.
