Websites of interest

Here are some links to interesting websites about data analysis, as well as sources of data. Email me if you find a useful resource that is not listed here.


Data repositories and APIs

A number of websites make data available for download, either through an end-user interface or via an API aimed at developers.

Data collection opportunities

These sources haven't made themselves as immediately accessible as the repositories, but instead provide interfaces to potentially dynamic data. Nonetheless, they can be queried systematically to construct data sets of interest. This may require a combination of API lookups and crawling. For example, an API call to a search API returns links to websites relevant to the topic under investigation, which can then be crawled and parsed to answer the question of interest.
