Data from A Digital Humanities 2014 Survey
datasetposted on 29.04.2016 by Ernesto Priego, Elika Ortega
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
This fileset contains two spreadsheets including the data collected through two online surveys about
a) the cost of attending the 2014 Digital Humanities conference (DH2014) in Lausanne, Switzerland, 7-12 July 2014 and
b) the reasons for not attending the 2014 Digital Humanities conference (DH2014) that took place in Lausanne, Switzerland, 7-12 July 2014.
Those attending DH2014 were asked to complete an online survey in order to find out approximately how much it costed them individually to do so.
A second survey sought to gain insights from those in the DH community who said not to be attending the conference.
The two datasets include partially unrefined response data from a total of 214 unique and complete responses to both surveys (113 for the first survey and 101 for the second survey).
The two datasets also share initial summaries of results through refined data tables as separate sheets.
The data collection templates were designed to obtain additional information regarding country of nationality, native language, country where respondents were based on, whether visas were required and diversity of expenses and sources of funding in order to highlight the international, multicultural and geopolitical dimension of attending the conference.
Any financial data included in the datasets must be understood to be rough estimates and is shared for indicative purposes only.
This fileset does not contain personal information that may identify individuals nor any senstitive information. Responses were anonymous and provided voluntarily with informed consent for open research purposes and data sharing.
The data was originally collected between 25/06/2014 17:26:53 GMT and 10/08/2014 11:08:27 GMT.
Ernesto Priego and Élika Ortega designed the data collection and template, promoted the survey, responded to immediate online feedback, collected data, aggregated, refined and visualised data and are currently authoring draft papers.
This was an independent research survey and it was not associated with nor sponsored by the 2014 Digital Humanities conference, other Digital Humanities conferences or their organisers.
