ICPSR Data Fair 2018 - Data: Powered By You

ICPSR's 2018 Data Fair focuses on the most important variable: you.

Data is in the news at a dizzying rate, reminding us that our choices in collecting and sharing data are of great consequence. Join us for the Data Fair, a series of webinars taking place October 1-5, to learn from thought leaders who will delve into important topics like:

  • data transparency
  • data activism
  • data in the community
  • what to do with data
  • and more

Since 2010, the ICPSR Data Fair has provided thousands of participants with world-renowned data training and resources. All for free, all virtual, and all open to the public. We invite you to join us for the 2018 Data Fair by registering for sessions below.
