Where to Find Data

Of course I use my sample data generator when I need some sample data. But sometimes I want some real data. I looked high and low for data sources to include in the upcoming 101 Ready to Use Excel Formulas book that Mike and I are writing. If you like data as much as I do, there might be a few sources you haven’t found on my pinboard page.


If you have a good one that’s not on that page, leave it in the comments.
