Subject: NHTS Data Challenge
Can you please share this with your respective committees.
The TRB NHTS task force (ABJ45T) is organizing a data challenge and more
information is below.
Can you tell us something original and surprising about transportation,
health, commerce, or patterns in America? The 2017 NHTS data is rich and
able to provide insight into important questions, if used by thorough and
curious researchers. Can you shed light on a topic like commuting, errands,
eating habits, walking, household composition, effects of ride sharing,
transit use or something else? Develop an idea, analyze the data, and
explain the importance of the result.
This data challenge is a competition for enthusiastic students,
professionals, and the public who want to showcase their analytical and
technical skills. The participants may work individually or in teams and
will have to showcase practical outcome using the 2017 NHTS public use data.
Deadline - Oct 1, 2018
Contact - Cynthia Bland at <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>
Prize - Opportunity to present at the 2019 TRB Annual Meeting.
