Social Data Science Center (SoDa)

The Social Data Science Center (SoDa) — a Center established by the College of Information Studies and the Joint Program in Survey Methodology (JPSM) within the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences — is an inter‐disciplinary academic and research center. We strive to become a leader in research and education involving new forms of social and behavioral data. SoDa plans to sponsor seminars, workshops and focused conferences designed to bring attention to the rapidly expanding universe of digitized data and new forms of behavioral data, as well as developments in data science that can benefit investigators in the social sciences.
