2023 Data Expo Challenge

The Challenge

The challenge data set for 2023 is the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) 2020, https://www.icpsr.umich.edu/web/NACJD/studies/38090/summary. The NCVS gathers data on personal and household crimes since 1973. The primary goals of the survey are to collect information about the victims, to explore the consequences of crime, and to estimate the number and types of crimes that go unreported.

 Contestants must use the NCVS 2020 data but are encouraged to combine additional data sets. Data sources for potential integration include:

We encourage participants to be creative in their research questions, objectives, and analysis. Novel and interactive visualizations to explore the data are always of interest. In addition, the data for download, the NCVS website has links to studies that utilize the NCVS. These studies may serve as inspiration or background for the challenge.
