Data-Planet–Massive Data Repository Trial

Emory is currently in the midst of a trial with a well-known data resource, Data Planet

Data-Planet Statistical Datasets is a web-based research solutions tool that provides fast and easy access to data from licensed and public domain datasets within an easy-to-use interface. With this dynamic tool, you can scan the contents of the collection, select subjects and variables of interest, and view your data in side-by-side tables and charts.

The Data-Planet repository contains more than 35 billion data points from 4.9 billion datasets sourced from more than 70 source organizations. There are billions of charts, maps, views, rankings, time series and tables available for use in the Data-Planet repository. All of the data have been standardized and structured, and are described with up to 37 fields of metadata, including a controlled vocabulary.

Statistical Datasets has a basic module and several premium datasets. Click here for a listing of datasets and sources available in the repository. All datasets have significant metadata.
