I'm interested in compiling open datasets for educational use. For example, this page from the State University of New York Geneseo includes open datasets by topic.

I'm especially interesting in datasets that may be appropriate for K-12 use, so I think it is important the data are a) cleaned and b) possibly relevant / interesting. Are there other sites, repositories, or resources with open data sets for educational use?

This question came from our site for people interested in statistics, machine learning, data analysis, data mining, and data visualization.


Quandl has open datasets. There are many that are free and although Quandl's focus is financial and economic data, there's also data on Countries, Society, Demography, Energy and Education. I hope they'll be useful for K-12 learning. You can browse Quandl's collections here: https://www.quandl.com/collections When you click on a collection, the articles written are meant to be educational for readers. Also, the sources of open, free data on Quandl are listed here: https://www.quandl.com/blog/free-data-on-quandl They include sources like the United Nations, World Bank, World Health Organization and many more. Hope this helps! [Disclosure: I work for Quandl]


Here are some useful data sources & repositories
