I'm reading a Shapefile with PySAL in order to do some anlysis. The shapefile's DBF contains three columns, "id", "count" and "population". All three are large integers with no Null values.
I try to prepare variables with the following code:
cnt = data.by_col_array('count') pop = data.by_col_array('population')
cnt works fine and returns with the expected values, but pop becomes an array filled with None types. I write the shapefile with FME and have verified that there are no missing values and the datatypes are the same. Looking at the file in QGIS it shows up fine.
Is there any obvious place to start looking here?
