USAFacts Principles USAFacts is a new data-driven portrait of the American population, our government’s finances, and government’s impact on society. We are a non-partisan, not-for-profit civic initiative and have no political agenda or commercial motive. Data – CISER CISER is all about Data; finding, depositing, understanding, and working with data in a range of secure environments – whatever level of security is required by the data provider – and more. CISER Data Archive CISER has an extensive data collection with emphasis on labor, political, and social behavior, demography, economics, and health. The collection includes federal and state census files, administrative records, public opinion surveys, economic and social data from national and international organizations, along with studies compiled by individual researchers.

Scotland's Environment Web Scotland’s Environment Web is developing a range of data visualisation applications that can be used by a wide variety of people with varying data interests and expertise - including the general public, teachers and students, policy officers and environmental assessment specialists. These applications read from significant amounts of raw data, in different formats and from multiple sources. They present data in an interactive format that helps users to relate, transform, manipulate and analyse to extract useful information. Live links are maintained to the published data so that automated updates are made on a regular basis. This ensures that the most up-to-date data is always presented.

The World Factbook - Central Intelligence Agency People from nearly every country share information with CIA, and new individuals contact us daily. If you have information you think might interest CIA due to our foreign intelligence collection mission, there are many ways to reach us. If you know of an imminent threat to a location inside the U.S., immediately contact your local law enforcement or FBI Field Office. Questionnaire design Perhaps the most important part of the survey process is the creation of questions that accurately measure the opinions, experiences and behaviors of the public. Accurate random sampling and high response rates will be wasted if the information gathered is built on a shaky foundation of ambiguous or biased questions. Creating good measures involves both writing good questions and organizing them to form the questionnaire. Questionnaire design is a multistage process that requires attention to many details at once.

American National Election Studies ANES items identified as Restricted Data are not publicly released and are available only under specific contractual conditions. Access can be requested only through the application process outlined here and only for the purpose of scientific and public policy research. The ANES greatly values the trust our respondents place in us to protect their confidentiality and for this reason, we impose strict legal and electronic requirements. We have tried to minimize the danger of breaches of respondent anonymity in both unrestricted and restricted datasets by aggregating critical variables such as geographic location and occupation/industry up to less specific levels than those provided by the respondent.

Fueling the Gold Rush: The Greatest Public Datasets for AI It has never been easier to build AI or machine learning-based systems than it is today. The ubiquity of cutting edge open-source tools such as TensorFlow, Torch, and Spark, coupled with the availability of massive amounts of computation power through AWS, Google Cloud, or other cloud providers, means that you can train cutting-edge models from your laptop over an afternoon coffee. Though not at the forefront of the AI hype train, the unsung hero of the AI revolution is data — lots and lots of labeled and annotated data, curated with the elbow grease of great research groups and companies who recognize that the democratization of data is a necessary step towards accelerating AI.

Premise Data General How many countries do you operate? We’re currently in more than 30 countries across six continents. How do you decide which countries you’ll start a network in next?
