ICPSR sponsors the competition to highlight the best undergraduate and master’s student research papers using quantitative data from ICPSR. The objective is to encourage students to explore the social sciences by means of critical analysis of a topic supported by quantitative analysis of a dataset(s) held within the ICPSR archive and presented in written form.
Deadline for submission is January 31, 2013.
