Fall 2017 MCA+ Data Visualization Assignment Library of Data

Select a dataset from the list below to work on a visualization, or explore sources of data in the boxes below. These datasets have been structured and cleaned so you can use them effectively in Google Sheets or CARTO.

Once you open a dataset, go to File > Make a copy... to add to your drive. Then you can add to the data, try sample visualizations in Google Sheets, or export as a .CSV and load into CARTO.

If the group does not like any of these data sources, feel free to develop a new one.
