Sortable database of Ig Nobel Prize Winners

There’s now an elegant, sortable database of Ig Nobel Prize Winners. It’s made in Silk – a platform for visualizing and sharing data. Silk says that it is:

…a way to search through and filter all the Ig Nobel prizes and find strange correlations (but not necessarily causations) such as: “prize winners that contain the words ‘beer’ and ‘sex'”. The database will be built and organized with Silk’s data-publishing platform.

All 23 years of Ig Nobel winners are included (very soon it will have 24 years of data). We hope this will be a useful tool for understanding which countries have won the most Ig Nobel Peace Prizes, or which Ig Nobel Prizes have been awarded to researchers in or from Norway.

    I would also like to mention that most individuals who find themselves with no health insurance are generally students, self-employed and those that are without a job. More than half of the uninsured are really under the age of 35. They do not really feel they are looking for health insurance because they’re young plus healthy. Their income is frequently spent on homes, food, as well as entertainment. Many individuals that do represent the working class either 100 or not professional are not supplied insurance by their work so they get along without because of the rising cost of health insurance in the states. Thanks for the strategies you reveal through this blog.
