Join us in celebrating Love Data Week 2023!

By Nicole Daly 

Join us for Love Data Week 2023! “Data: Agent of Change” starts February 13. Learn more at #LoveData23 

If you haven’t participated before, Love Data Week is the international celebration of data. The theme this year is “Data: Agent of Change.” Love Data Week 2023 is about inspiring your community to use data to bring about changes that matter. Policy change, environmental change, social change…we can move mountains with the right data guiding our decisions. This year we’re focused on helping new and seasoned data users find data training and other resources that can help move the needle on the issues they care about. 

Find events and activities happening locally and virtually around the world: Love Data Week 2023 events and activities

  • ICPSR (Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research, Institute for Social Research, University of Michigan)
    • Provides access to archived social science data and data-driven learning guides designed for the classroom. Includes information about data management and curation services available to member institutions. (A free ICPSR account is required to download data. The account must be created on campus.)
  • Qualitative Data Repository for qualitative and multi-method data.
    • Archives and publishes data generated through qualitative and multi-method research methods. Provides guidance for managing, sharing, citing, and reusing qualitative data. Villanova’s QDR membership offers a range of user support services to facilitate the storing and sharing of data.
  • Pew Research Center
    • The Pew Research Center is a nonpartisan “fact tank” that provides information on the issues, attitudes, and trends shaping America and the world. It does so by conducting public opinion polling and social science research; by reporting news and analyzing news coverage; and by holding forums and briefings. It does not take positions on policy issues.
  • Statistical Insight (ProQuest)
    • Offers indexing, abstracting, and selected full text of statistical publications from U.S. state and federal governments, business and research institutes, and international material from the UN, OECD, EU, etc. Some tables are available in GIF, XLS, CSV, and other formats. 

This event is organized by ICPSR, a data repository that is available from the Falvey Library homepage, Databases A-Z list.
