6 Ways to Get Involved

February 12-16, 2024, marks the 9th annual international celebration of Love Data Week!
The theme this year is “My Kind of Data.”

What is Love Data Week?

Love Data Week is a week-long global celebration hosted by the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR). The celebration aims to foster engagement with data, promote data literacy, and highlight the importance of data in various research fields. It's a unique opportunity for students, researchers, and professionals to come together, celebrate their love for data, and expand their data horizons.

My Kind of Data

The theme "My Kind of Data" celebrates the individuality of our data experiences. Explore the ways in which different disciplines, industries, and individuals interpret and leverage data to create meaningful impact. While our relationships with data may be unique, "My Kind of Data" also emphasizes the power of shared interests. Connect with others who share similar research interests, challenges, or goals during Love Data Week, fostering data community and collaboration.
