The ASA Computing, Government, and Graphics sections will sponsor the Data Challenge Expo 2019 at JSM 2019 in Denver, Colorado. The contest, now annual, challenges participants to analyze a government data set using statistical and visualization tools and methods. It is open to anyone interested in participating, including college students and professionals from the private and public sectors.

Contestants will present their results in a speed poster session at JSM and must submit their abstracts to the JSM online system. Presenters are responsible for their own JSM registration and travel costs, as well as any other costs associated with JSM attendance.

Group submissions are acceptable. To enter, contestants must do the following by February 4, 2019:

  • Submit an abstract for a speed poster session. Specify the Government Statistics Section (GSS) as the main sponsor.
  • Forward the JSM abstract submission email to Wendy Martinez.

The data set for the Data Challenge Expo 2019 will be the New York City Housing and Vacancy Survey. Public use data files and documentation are available. Contestants must use some portion of the New York City Housing and Vacancy Survey data, but can combine other data sources in the analysis.

Questions about the Data Challenge Expo 2019 can be directed to Martinez.
