Due to the recent Campus Wide in person class suspension and declared national emergency the DataFest 2020 is cancelled.
What Is ASA DataFestTM?
American Statistical Association (ASA) DataFestTM is a celebration of data in which teams of undergraduates work "around the clock" to discover and share meaning in a large, rich, and complex data set. It is a nationally coordinated weekend-long data analysis competition and challenges students to find their own story to tell with the data that is meaningful to the data donor. Hard-working undergraduate students in any major are welcome!
Students work in teams of two to five to analyze a data set, which will be revealed at the opening kickoff of the DataFest at Mizzou event (DataFest video. https://youtu.be/M12Uquw1Pjc). After two days of intense data wrangling, analysis, and presentation design, each team is allowed a short presentation to impress a panel of judges. Participations are nation-wide but the competition is organized separately in each region.
