General
Data Sets 



Chance Project at Dartmouth University: http://www.dartmouth.edu/~chance
Sponsored by the Mathematics Department at Dartmouth, this site
contains some data sets emphasizing probability and statistics,
designed to support a curriculum that promotes quantitative literacy.


Differential Equation Data Sets at the University
of Arizona: http://www.math.arizona.edu/~dsl/book.htm
This site supports a differential equations textbook by David Lomen
and David Lovelock, as well as the Arizona Mathematical Software
program. Data sets are available in the following disciplines:
Chemistry, Electricity, Growth, Motion, Population and Miscellaneous.


Data and Story Library (DASL or "Dazzle"):
http://lib.stat.cmu.edu/DASL
Hosted by the Department of Statistics at Carnegie Mellon University,
this is a very comprehensive website that features data sets from
many fields and disciplines, with accompanying textural descriptions
(stories) and graphical representations. The mathematical emphasis
of these data and stories is almost exclusively statistics. This
is a great website.


EESEE: http://www.stat.ohiostate.edu/~eesee/Content.html
The Electronic Encyclopedia of Statistical Examples and Exercises
at Ohio State University "is designed to be a resource for
educators and an aid for students in the study of statistics. It
is intended to serve as a supplement to introductory textbooks written
for students with varying degrees of mathematical backgrounds. EESEE
currently includes over 80 "realworld" stories, or examples,
about the uses and abuses of statistics and statistical inference,
drawn from published and printed media encompassing a wide range
of subjectmatter areas."


StatLib at Carnegie Mellon University: http://lib.stat.cmu.edu/datasets
Another web site at CMU, containing data sets submitted by interested
users. Statistical in focus but quite diverse.


Time Series Data Library (TSDL) by Rob Hyndman
of Monash University: http://wwwpersonal.buseco.monash.edu.au/~hyndman/TSDL
Over 500 different time series data sets in a couple of dozen
different disciplines, plus links to a few other time series web
sites.

Specific Data Sets by Topic 



Coastal Data Information Program (CDIP) at Scripps:
http://cdip.ucsd.edu The Scripps
Institution of Oceanography (SIO) collects and warehouses information
on waves, wind and temperature collected by buoys along the coasts
of CA, OR and WA.


The Data Zoo at the Center for Coastal Studies
at UCSD http://ccs.ucsd.edu/zoo
Also sponsored by Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Unadulterated
data in compressed files from various cruises and research projects.


US Census Bureau http://www.census.gov
All manner of US and international census information (populations,
economics, social indicators, etc.), including searchable databases
and animated graphics. Highly recommended site.


National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS)
http://www.usda.gov/nass
The statistics arm of the USDA, probably the best single source
of agricultural data, with searchable databases that can be customized
to your needs. Great time series information.


National Soil Survey Center NSSC Database http://statlab.iastate.edu/soils/nsdaf
Sponsored by the USDA and Iowa State University. A variety of data,
such as monthly soil temperatures for stations in each state, and
some large GIS databases on soil type distributions in the US.


Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission (PSMFC)
http://www.psmfc.org/overview.html
One of three interstate commissions dedicated to resolving fishery
issues. Look under "Projects"; each project often contains
a wide variety of fisheries data, usually related to commercial
and sport fisheries.


DOE/EIA Energy Consumption http://www.eia.doe.gov/emeu/consumption
The Department of Energy, Energy Information Administration, has
a special page devoted to energy use, which contains many different
data sets based on energy type, usage sector, etc. There's a special
residential energy consumption page for the 1997 household survey,
with very detailed data.


EPA's Clean Air Markets Program, Data Download
http://www.epa.gov/airmarkets/data.html
Data on acid rain, NOx, SOx and other air pollutants, including
emissions, deposition and other air quality measurements. Files
are in a wide variety of formats (zipped, Excel, PDF, etc.). Links
to other data sources.


EPA's Office of Air and Radiation OAR http://www.epa.gov/oar/airdata/
Another EPA site for air quality information, such as reports,
graphics (real time and not) and data tables. Customizable searches.


National Atmospheric Deposition Program NADP
http://nadp.sws.uiuc.edu/nadpdata
A fourstar website. A clickable map of the US shows all the monitoring
stations in the program, each of which is linked to tons of data.
Customizable searches too. AWESOME.


Water on the Web http://wow.nrri.umn.edu/wow/
Water on the Web (WOW) offers unique opportunities for high school
and first year college students to learn basic science through handson
science activities. The website features real water quality data
from 4 Minnesota lakes, provided in realtime and archived formats.
Excellent graphical displays of data.
