ECON 368 - Big Data and Economics: Datasets

Big data

The following guide highlights datasets that are big (significant in size and complexity) and free to use.

Large data archives

These are collections of datasets on varied topics, which may qualify as "big data" or not.

Open data portals

Many large cities have data portals with freely available data from the city government, often including crimes, permits, inspections, and other data generated by city functions.

Google "data portal" and a city or state and you will find more options.
