Summing up 2014

A brief summary of 2014 at data insights...

If you could sum up your year in a word, what would it be?


In 2014 I published and presented more than I could have expected, given that I was still on maternity leave for a quarter of the year.

I authored two entries in the Sage Encyclopedia of Transportation (Regional Transportation Plans and Regional Transportation Planning Organizations)

My essay on sexual health in the 1700s, as illustrated by details drawn from Casanova's memoir, was published by Hektoen International.

Best read

Of all of the non-fiction I read in 2014 a couple of books stand out...

Fromms: How Julius Fromm's Condom Empire Fell to the Nazis
Condom Nation: The U.S. Government's Sex Education Campaign from World War I to the Internet

Best conference experience?

My talk on comparing administrative records data to census counts at PAA 2014 in Boston would have been infinitely more enjoyable if I hadn't also come down with the flu...

But the food (ahem... I mean the content) at the CIC Impact Summit more than made up for any other 2014 conference catastrophes.

Most popular post?

My summary of time use and parenting (comparing the work of moms and dads, and comparing pre- and post-baby time use) generated the most traffic of any single 2014 post, but my geek joke posts reigned supreme overall.

Thank you all for sticking around in 2014!
