Downloadable Data

This guide will help you find data sets that you can use for any project that requires data to manipulate.


Many projects require a data set to manipulate and finding data can be a chore. This guide shows you resources that  allow you to either download data directly or copy and paste data into Excel.

We have databases that allow downloadable data and this guide also includes many government and educational sites that allow free use of their data.


Google Dataset Search


"Across the web, there are millions of datasets about nearly any subject that interests you. If you're looking to buy a puppy, you could find datasets compiling complaints of puppy buyers or studies on puppy cognition. Or if you like skiing, you could find data on revenue of ski resorts or injury rates and participation numbers. Dataset Search has indexed almost 25 million of these datasets, giving you a single place to search for datasets and find links to where the data is.
