2014 Ig Nobel Prize Winners added to sortable database

The sortable database of Ig Nobel Prize Winners now includes data from all 24 years of prizes, including the recently announced 2014 prizes.

The information lives on the Silk data publishing platform, and helped us determine that we have awarded Ig Nobel Prizes in exactly 50 categories. It also helped University Ranking Watch compare the top 10 Ig Nobel producing countries with the Top 10 QS Ranking countries. And it helped at least one person create a list of every Ig Nobel Prize that has contained the word “beer” or “sex” in its citation.

Perhaps this database will reveal even more exciting correlations, or perhaps even causations.
