The process of collecting data can be cost and time prohibitive. Also, one great way to learn a new statistics, visualization or other data heavy software tool is with a sample data set. If you've collected an interesting data set that you think other students might find pretty neat too, please contact us!
Make sure you've a reliable connection. This is especially important for larger data sets. You can find a listing of our datasets and a breif description by either using the menu item Data Sets of using the button labeled "List of Data Sets" above.
Data standards can help establish consistency among data sets, facilitate the process of linking data sets, and can help to enforce better data practices. We are developing recommended standards for our hosted data sets. If you've any interest in participating in this process, we'd be delighted to include you!
