I downloaded the 2015 adverse drug events data from openfda and I want to run some analysis with python. I am a python newbie, but have become comfortable with the scikit-learn libraries, but I cannot seem to get the json decoding to work to even get started.
This is my basic script:
import json import zipfile d = None data = None with zipfile.ZipFile("./data/drug-event-Q4-0001-of-0013.json.zip", "r") as z: for filename in z.namelist(): print(filename) with z.open(filename) as f: data = f.read() d = json.loads(data)
I know this is a pretty basic question, but I have been searching and though I am able to find code snippets for gzip, I cannot find any for plain zip files.
