Public Data for Practice

Published / by Shep Sheppard / Leave a Comment

It is no secret that i will frequently use my blogs as a resource for me to collect and store my own thoughts and to remember where i put things, and i kinda figure if i need to learn something and write it down, others can probably benefit from it.  This particular post will be a living post as i am always finding new public data sources i need to remember.   Some off my links will be duplicated in other links. Some of these will be required for some future blogs of R training scripts.
