Hi Katherine,

This is out of my expertise but SEMCOG has readily available simple stats regarding Michigan’s Economic/Demographic Profile.

Hi Katherine,

For US data, you might consider FRED<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__fred.stlouisfed.org_categories&d=DwMFaQ&c=aLnS6P8Ng0zSNhCF04OWImQ_He2L69sNWG3PbxeyieE&r=JBtZmFsXsuwlk6Ai03SMEW0kUj098RmPTaaKXmBGY6Q&m=o5U3DC3WKQ6NI0ouPy43V7t8NM87CTQK22eltLrd3jg&s=3bc9h_recNq3nVJlu_J8ZTR2kkUT_vPevAh6iacJN8o&e=>.  For global data, World Development Indicators<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__databank.worldbank.org_reports.aspx-3Fsource-3Dworld-2Ddevelopment-2Dindicators&d=DwMFaQ&c=aLnS6P8Ng0zSNhCF04OWImQ_He2L69sNWG3PbxeyieE&r=JBtZmFsXsuwlk6Ai03SMEW0kUj098RmPTaaKXmBGY6Q&m=o5U3DC3WKQ6NI0ouPy43V7t8NM87CTQK22eltLrd3jg&s=NLwV-57I24Z5G6fAyluiQCrl1cCN_jBwL_s_3ZilGEU&e=> and International Financial Statistics<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__data.imf.org_-3Fsk-3D4C514D48-2DB6BA-2D49ED-2D8AB9-2D52B0C1A0179B-26sId-3D1409151240976&d=DwMFaQ&c=aLnS6P8Ng0zSNhCF04OWImQ_He2L69sNWG3PbxeyieE&r=JBtZmFsXsuwlk6Ai03SMEW0kUj098RmPTaaKXmBGY6Q&m=o5U3DC3WKQ6NI0ouPy43V7t8NM87CTQK22eltLrd3jg&s=Z5awxBtlQ6oRj0v4t0Psfhp6fWlS1t1_q_uMGvFk2R8&e=> are a couple of mainstream sources that are fairly simple to use.

Hi all,
I’m working with an econometrics professor who is looking for “sites/databases with simple user interfaces to download finance data, cross-country macroeconomic series, US geographic areas with info on income, pollution, etc., and other datasets you might know of that have a good mix of categorical and quantitative variables.”

She adds, “The American Community Survey is nice, but it have very few quantitative variables. The [Mintel] marketing dataset that one of my students used last fall was good, except that the data could not be analyzed other than by created cross-tabs.”

This is outside my area of expertise. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Much appreciated!
