Big data in public affairs refers to a combination of administrative data collected through traditional means and large-scale data sets created by sensors, computer networks, or individuals as they use the Internet. In public affairs, new opportunities for real-time insights into behavioral patterns are emerging but are bound by safeguards limiting government reach through the restriction of the collection and analysis of these data. To address both the opportunities and challenges of this emerging phenomenon, the authors first review the evolving canon of big data articles across related fields. Second, they derive a working definition of big data in public affairs. Third, they review the methodological and analytic challenges of using big data in public affairs scholarship and practice. The article concludes with implications for public affairs.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Big Data in Public Affairs</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Isett, Kimberley</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:issued>2016-11</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Mergel, Ines</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2016-09-20T14:00:13Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Mergel, Ines</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Rethemeyer, R.
