Data Challenges – An Open Discussion (307949)

*Wendy Martinez, Bureau of Labor Statistics 

The rest of this session will include an open discussion on data challenges and how they can be used as a tool for learning, innovation, and more. I will set the stage by describing the history of data challenges in the ASA Statistical Computing and Graphics Sections, and how those data sets have been used over the years. This will be followed by the now annual Data Challenge Expo that takes place at the Joint Statistical Meetings. I will conclude by presenting the data set for the 2020 Data Challenge Expo. There will be sufficient time for floor discussions.
