Finding Datasets

Every so often, students ask where they can find datasets to work on projects on your own. Over the past few years I’ve compiled this list.

General sources of data

These sites allow you to search for datasets (in CSV format) from a variety of different domains. Some may require you to sign up for an account; these are generally reputable sources.

Domain-specific sources of data

Tip: if a site only allows you to download a file as an Excel file, not a CSV file, you can download it, open it in a spreadsheet viewer (Excel, Numbers, Google Sheets), and export it to a CSV.
