Google Dataset Search: An easy way to find dataset

Dataset is a collection of data, collected by researchers to analyze, visualize or to find answers to specific research questions. There are many public data repositories like data.gov, you can get a specific dataset of interest. But it is country specific. Of course, you can search google for your desired dataset but do you know that Google has a specific search engine for dataset? Yes, it is Google Dataset Search.

Let’s try to find a dataset of “under-five mortality rate of Germany”. Like normal Google search, Dataset Search also has auto-complete options. In the result page, a short summary of the dataset will be shown along with the actual link of the dataset.

Besides this, Google has also Public Data service where you can explore and visualize public datasets.

I hope you like this post that will help your next dataset search a lot more easier. Thank you.
