Welcome to Your Data Sets Research Guide!

Thanks for visiting your Research Guide for finding data sets!

This guide has been designed through collaboration with Dr. Miller to provide you with a place to begin research using data sets or to find more information on topics covered in class.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact Head of Reference Services Eli Arnold '06 at 


Starting Points

  • Amazon Web Services Public Datasets
    "Public Datasets on AWS provides a centralized repository of public datasets that can be seamlessly integrated into AWS cloud-based applications."
  • Data Sources on the Web
    This list of data sources has been collected and categorized for your convenience by Microsoft. The list has been limited to data for which there is a reasonably simple process for importing .csv files. Most of the data sets are free, however, some are not.
  • Google Public Data Explorer
    "With the Data Explorer, you can mash up data using line graphs, bar graphs, maps, and bubble charts. The visualizations are dynamic, so you can watch them move over time, change topics, highlight different entries, and change the scale. Once you have a chart ready, you can easily share it with friends or even embed it on your own website or blog." [from Google Blog]
  • Time Series Data Library (TSDL)
    The Time Series Data Library (TSDL) was created by Rob Hyndman, Professor of Statistics at Monash University, Australia and includes topics such as Utilities; Transport and Tourism; Tree-Rings; Crime; Chemistry; Hydrology; Meteorology; and Physics.
  • World Bank Data Catalog
    Aggregate source for freely-available World Bank statistics, including all the World Development Indicators (WDI), some of Global Development Finance, statistics on health, gender, education, doing business, and more.
  • UN Data
    Official statistics produced by countries and compiled by United Nations data system, as well as estimates and projections, in the areas of agriculture, crime, education, energy, industry, labour, national accounts, population, and tourism.
