Your group will register its first, second, and third choices for datasets, but, alas, we cannot promise you’ll get the data you want. Any group that does not receive its first, second, or third choice will get two extra points added to its score for the final project.

On October 14, you’ll be issued a project capsule, containing the data itself (in the form of a lightly cleaned spreadsheet), supporting documentation, a couple books and articles to start off your research, and the name of a subject-matter expert who has agreed to serve as an resource for your group.
