Hi, Josef. This project may be neverending!
The new request is to see if one algorithm can explain the portion of giving that is from direct response (amount_giving). One challenge is that we do not have that particular client's total giving from all sources by month. I did, however, add various giving ($ billions) overall to US charity by month for sectors and sources - the new 601 series.
This will pertain to active donors only. Goal is the same - to project direct response total receipts using only economic variables or the new giving data supplied.
Thank you in advance for your consideration!
