The open web provides a plethora of resources for finding data. Below are data resources arranged by general topic or try using advanced Google searching.
Tips for searching Google include:
• Try using Google Advanced Search
• Include search terms like data or table
• Google ignores the word AND as a search operator. But typing OR in all caps will find similar or related terms (e.g. women OR females OR girls).
• Search for a particular document type (e.g. childhood obesity filetype:xls)
• Search for data on a particular site or domain (e.g. childhood obesity site:.gov)
• Exclude words by using the "-" sign in front of the word you wish to exclude
