The ISI Florence Nightingale Prize for Data Visualization is named in honor of Florence Nightingale’s exemplary use of data visualization to convey statistical information. The entries for this year’s prize were the winners of the Best Visualization prize from each of the local ASA DataFest sites, consisting of video analyses produced by teams of undergraduate students. The data sets used were responses to survey questions about prescription drug use. There were survey responses from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Germany. Teams were asked to analyze the data from one or more of these surveys to identify patterns of drug use in that country that could be used by physicians to best advise patients and identify potential misuse. The first, second and third place teams were from Southern Methodist University, Willamette University, and UCLA, respectively.
