A lot of us have been thinking about data curation for some time, and some of us are just starting…I don’t want to even think about twitterarchiving! I have had a few links over on Diigo and am now thinking about where we find data. I came across this interesting page by a graduate student on where he finds data. He lists University places:
- Data and Story Library – An online library of datafiles and stories that illustrate the use of basic statistics methods, from Carnegie Mellon
- Berkeley Data Lab – Part of the UC Berkeley library system. Hey, they’ve even on Twitter.
- UCLA Statistics Data Sets – Some of the data that UCLA stat uses in their labs and assignments.
It seems there must be more universities with public data banks. I’m going to look for more.
