Data Sets: A List in Flux

After my Pinterest post, I got a little bit hooked, mostly because I realized that it was a visual way for me to see my bookmarks. This makes it easier for me to find the information I am looking for quickly. One problem is that it requires an image, so I quickly realized that the links for data sets wouldn’t work so well on Pinterest.

Then I remembered that I have used my personal blog as an organized reminder list (see this post where I remind myself how to re-set features on my computer after disaster), and thought I could do the same here, but with  data sets that others could also use. So, inspired by the post Rob linked to some time ago (Finding Data) I thought I would start putting together a more comprehensive list as I have time. This way, when I come across new data sets, I can just add them in.

Below, I have taken the data sets listed by RevoJoe from his post for Inside-R, and reorganized them a little. Over time, they could be re-organized again, and again, and again. It would be nice to add a short description for each as well (maybe someday). I have added some others to the list as well.
