One of the most challenging elements of social science research is that researchers must often rely on data that comes from humans — and humans are notoriously unreliable.

This year, the event is walk-up, not drive-thru, and it takes place, for now, on the main fairgrounds, not the Orange Parking Lot off Interstate 690 where it was held in 2020.
