SportDataGraphs: What statistics tell us about sports

  • News

The Hochschuletage in the Dortmunder U gives a home to an exhibition on sports and statistics from April 21 to May 29, 2023.

Can it be confirmed based on data that the "home field advantage" really exists? Is Borussia Dortmund really affected by more injuries than other first division soccer clubs?

Students from the Faculty of Statistics and the Institute of Journalism have addressed these and other questions relating to the topic of sports myths and their sound data evaluation in the interdisciplinary seminar "Sport and Statistics". Work from nine groups will be on display. In addition, there is a small soccer parkour with electronic timing and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering contributes sensor technology for sports shoes to the exhibition. The exhibition will be rounded off with lectures, discussions and live experiments.
