Love Data Week is the international celebration of data—and this year, we're celebrating the fact that Data is (are?) for Everyone. Wherever you are on your data journey, we'll be leading you through five steps to becoming a more caring, more thoughtful data friend (with benefits). Check out the tabs to the left to find out more about how to speak data's love language.

Adopt a Dataset from ICPSR

What does it mean to adopt a dataset?

Adopting a dataset is kind of like adopting a dog, except less messy (um, sometimes -- for tips about how to keep your pet nice and clean, be sure to check out our Clean Data tab on the left). Head over to the ICPSR website, fill out the Dataset Adoption Form , and then download, analyze online, or just review the summary information for your adopted data. Your role is to bring your dataset to life by learning about the information it contains and to share the information you're learning through email, social media, virtual meetings, and more.
