There are 3 options, you can choose one of them (there are no restrictions on that)

  1. Bring your own data from work (you can remove any private or confidential information, for example: if you are bringing any sales or cost data of an item/product or service – the name can be masked)
  2. Use data from your previous work or company you have access to (again you can remove any private/confidential information)
  3. Use data from public domain – In today’s world, there is no dearth of structured data. Here are some places where you can get data from:
    • Any data source you have access to like the Hawkes Learning Resources
      • Datasets (1) (Links to an external site.) from Hawkes
      • Datasets (2) (Links to an external site.) from Hawkes – Look at the additional datasets, not the chapter datasets
    • U.S. Bureau of Labor Statics (Links to an external site.)
    • U.S. Government’s open data (Links to an external site.)
    • Center for Medicare and Medicaid services (Links to an external site.)
    • Kaggle datasets (Links to an external site.)
    • WHO Data repository (Links to an external site.)
    • World Bank Data (Links to an external site.)
    • Google Public data explorer (Links to an external site.)
      • Amazing visualization or graphics
      • But remember, we need the data to do analysis, if you look at the bottom of any figure – Google would provide the source name, and you can retrieve data from there.
    • Any sports data (from the appropriate website, getting data in structured format for several years might be challenge, but a few minutes or an hour – you can do it)
      • For example – Cricket data could be obtained from espncricinfo (Links to an external site.).
