Where to start: finding quality datasets

Reuse of open data is making scientific findings more statistically robust and leading to exciting new mata-analytical discoveries. Data reuse makes science more reporducible and makes best use of the hard work and cost of data collection. Best of all... data reuse means that you can find some fun data to play around with!

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Describe what motivates researchers to find and reuse others’ data
  • Identify, access, and compare/contrast resources and tools for finding datasets, including Statistics Canada, the Federated Research Data Repository, Scholar’s GeoPortal, Kaggle, and more.

This workshop is a part of the "where to start" data workshop series. This means that the point of the session is not to deliver a step-by-step tutorial. Instead, we aim to help you to identify the best resources to begin a sustainable, practical journey to the form of data literacy that best suits your needs. Each workshop is a stand-alone experience, though they are offered in an intentional sequence.
