  Common Data Set Initiative
The Common Data Set (CDS) initiative is a collaborative effort among data providers in the higher education community and publishers as represented by the College Board, Peterson's, and U.S. News and World Report.
Data items and definitions used by the U.S. Department of Education in its higher education surveys often serve as a guide in the continued development of the CDS.
The CDS is a set of standards and definitions of data items rather than a survey instrument or set of data represented in a database.

  ERS/USDA Data - International Macroeconomic Data Set
The International Macroeconomic Data Set provides data from 1969 through 2017 for real (adjusted for inflation) gross domestic product (GDP), population, real exchange rates, and other variables for the 190 countries and 34 regions that are most important for U.S. agricultural trade.
The data presented here are a key component of the USDA Baseline projections process, and can be used as a benchmark for analyzing the impacts of U.S. and global macroeconomic shocks.
For population data and projections for 1950-2050, visit the Bureau of the Census.

 Affymetrix - Latin Square Data
This data set consists of 3 technical replicates of 14 separate hybridizations of 42 spiked transcripts in a complex human background at concentrations ranging from 0.125pM to 512pM.
The data set is expected to be useful for the development and comparison of expression analysis methods.
These data are provided for use in conjunction with data from other groups to establish a set of common or standardized data sets that can be used by the scientific community to develop and validate expression algorithms.

  Tinnitus Archive: Data Sets
A DATA SET is defined as a collection of data summaries and analyses that are derived from a single, defined group of subjects.
Summaries of data obtained from 1630 patients seen at the OHSU Tinnitus Clinic between 29.Dec.1981 and 14.Aug.1994.

 Network Data Access Policy
Type II - data are to be released to restricted audiences according to terms specified by the owners of the data.
The access to all LTER data is subject to requirements set forth by this policy document to enable data providers to track usage, evaluate its impact in the community, and confirm users' acceptance of the terms of acceptable use.
Data providers wishing to impose further requirements beyond these are encouraged to include them in their Restricted Data Use Agreements accompanying the datasets.

 Adobe Labs - Spry Data Set and Dynamic Region Overview
The data set uses the XPath argument that was passed to its constructor to navigate the XML DOM tree to find the set of nodes that represent the data you are interested in.
Use of data caching and of coalescing requests can greatly improve performance, especially when multiple data sets refer to the same XML data, but there may be times when you need to load the data directly off the server.
Each row in the data set is also assigned a unique ID which allows someone to refer to a specific row in the data set even after the order of the rows in the data set change.

 Acknowledgments and Introduction
The data can be uploaded into good database or spreadsheet software, recoded, queried, reorganized, and/or uploaded into SPSS (Statistical Package for Social Sciences) or other statistical software to allow for easy recoding, complex calculations, and for making graphs.
Once we largely completed the data entry process, many details had to be ironed out--always a slow, tedious process on a large database.
I entered data alongside the other researchers while training and supervising them until I was confident of their competence and then carefully reviewed their work, correcting detectable errors and maintained the central databases into which new data were downloaded as they were collected.

 Paul Hensel's International Relations Data Site
Some data sets attempt to cover the entire world from 1816-1992, for example, while others are limited to a specific subset of cases (e.g., South America or OECD members) or a more limited temporal subset (e.g., 1990-1995).
Many of the data sets used in social science research are quite large, and would require excessive bandwidth (and excessive download times) if made available in their full size.
As a result, many on-line data sets are made available in some compressed format, which may reduce their size by 90 percent or more (depending on the nature of the original data set and the compression format used).

 E-Example 6.6: Comparing Properties of the Mean and the Median with Technology   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The median is a measure of the "middle" of the data.
The mean (a number which "evens out" or balances a set of data) is computed by adding all the numbers in the set and dividing the sum by the number of elements added.
Changing one data value does not affect the median, unless the data value is moved across the middle of the data set.

 Visualize your data with gnuplot
Most data sets have numerical columns, but this one represents a challenge because the x-axis is time data.
Having data sets with a non-white space character separating the data points is a very common occurrence.
At times, a real-life data set may not have all the points -- there may be an x-value but the corresponding y-value may be missing for the column you are trying to plot.

 Datasets
The training data contains 78 patient samples, 34 of which are from patients who had developed distance metastases within 5 years (labelled as "relapse"), the rest 44 samples are from patients who remained healthy from the disease after their initial diagnosis for interval of at least 5 years (labelled as "non-relapse").
The proteomic spectra were generated by mass spectroscopy and the data set provided here is 6-19-02, which includes 91 controls (Normal) and 162 ovarian cancers.
An independent set of testing samples from (2) is also prepared, which is from a different experiment and has a nearly 10-fold difference in overall microarray intensity from the training data.

 Alert 1
Summary - The Common Data Set (CDS) initiative is a collaborative effort between four major college guide publishers and the educational community to develop a standard set of questions and data definitions for use in surveys that gather information for college guidebooks, rankings and other resources for prospective students.
The annual schedule calls for the latest Common Data Set questionnaire and definitions to be available by August each year for institutions to use in organizing their data and for publishers to use in preparing their surveys.
Use of the Common Data Set means more time and effort can be spent ensuring the accuracy of essential elements and assures more consistency in responding to different requests.
