Come join us for an opportunity to work with BIG, unique datasets (over 10 million observations spanning 30 years). Available datasets focus on migration, demographics, and social factors on the county and CBSA level (more information on data and projects at Hacker League site).

All research questions are encouraged! Participants may work in teams (have one set up ahead of time or join one that day) or individually. No preparation is necessary, but if you would like to organize a project ahead of time, this can be created in the Projects tab. Please do register as a participant if you plan to come that day. You will need to create an account at Hacker League if you do not have one - it's easy!

Lunch and refreshments will be provided - this event is free and open to the community - beginners are welcome. Laptops are recommended.

Sponsored by the Big Data Social Science IGERT program at the Pennsylvania State University.
