The World Values Survey (WVS) is a worldwide network of social scientists studying changing values and their impact on social and political life. The WVS in collaboration with EVS (European Values Study) carried out representative national surveys in more than 100 countries containing almost 90 percent of the world's population. These surveys show pervasive changes in what people want out of life and what they believe. In order to monitor these changes, the EVS/WVS has executed six waves of surveys, from 1981 to 2013. is a portal where faculty can find resources and ideas to reduce the challenges of bringing real data into post-secondary classes. It allows faculty to introduce and build students' quantitative reasoning abilities with readily available, user-friendly, data-driven teaching materials.
KONECT (the Koblenz Network Collection) is a project to collect large network datasets of all types in order to perform research in network science and related fields, collected by the Institute of Web Science and Technologies at the University of Koblenz–Landau. KONECT contains over a hundred network datasets of various types, including directed, undirected, bipartite, weighted, unweighted, signed and rating networks. The networks of KONECT are collected from many diverse areas such as social networks, hyperlink networks, authorship networks, physical networks, interaction networks and communication networks. The KONECT project has developed network analysis tools which are used to compute network statistics, to draw plots and to implement various link prediction algorithms. The result of these analyses are presented on these pages. Whenever we are allowed to do so, we provide a download of the networks.
The German Youth Institute is a leading non-university research institute. Since 1988, empirical studies about the growing up of children and young people and to life situations of adults and families were regularly conducted. The Research Data Centre is part of the department "Social Monitoring." It processes the data and provides data access for secondary analysis.
Our lab investigates how cognition manifests in, and is influenced by, the social contexts in which it occurs. We focus: 1) on how conversational interactions can reshape memory, by promoting shared remembering and shared forgetting, and 2) on how socio-cognitive processes affect the formation of collective memories and beliefs, and the dynamics of collective decisions. In exploring these issues, while maintaining high ecological validity, our lab integrates a wide range of methodologies, including laboratory experiments, field studies, social network analysis, and agent-based simulations.

Cell phones have become an important platform for the understanding of social dynamics and influence, because of their pervasiveness, sensing capabilities, and computational power. Many applications have emerged in recent years in mobile health, mobile banking, location based services, media democracy, and social movements. With these new capabilities, we can potentially be able to identify exact points and times of infection for diseases, determine who most influences us to gain weight or become healthier, know exactly how information flows among employees and productivity emerges in our work spaces, and understand how rumors spread. In an attempt to address these challenges, we release several mobile data sets here in "Reality Commons" that contain the dynamics of several communities of about 100 people each. We invite researchers to propose and submit their own applications of the data to demonstrate the scientific and business values of these data sets, suggest how to meaningfully extend these experiments to larger populations, and develop the math that fits agent-based models or systems dynamics models to larger populations. These data sets were collected with tools developed in the MIT Human Dynamics Lab and are now available as open source projects or at cost.
The Research Data Centre PIAAC grants scientifically interested users access to the German and international data of the Programme for the Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC). The first wave of PIAAC was conducted in 2011 and 2012, initiated by the OECD. The survey was based on a representative population sample. First, a computer assisted interview was conducted, which was followed by a competency assessment, usually performed on the computer.
The Research Data Center (RDC) of the Collaborative Research Center 882 "From heterogeneities to inequalities" at Bielefeld University provides external scientists access to the research data generated in the CRC 882. It provides access to both qualitative and quantitative data from the field of inequality research. The CRC 882 RDC supports external researchers who are reusing the data, as well as gives advice on data documentation and anonymization procedures to the researchers of the CRC to ensure high data quality. The datasets include, for example, a panel on youth crime, different series of interviews on ethnicity, paternal life and recalls of employees, as well as other panels, interview data and experimental data. In the further course of the Collaborative Research Center the database will be expanded with the data of future projects. External scientists can make an application for the scientific use of CRC 882 Research Data. In accordance with data privacy requirements, the access will be organized via controlled remote data access or via on-site use. For this purpose, the RDC provides workplaces for guest researchers.

The African Development Bank Group (AfDB) is committed to supporting statistical development in Africa as a sound basis for designing and managing effective development policies for reducing poverty on the continent. Reliable and timely data is critical to setting goals and targets as well as evaluating project impact. Reliable data constitutes the single most convincing way of getting the people involved in what their leaders and institutions are doing. It also helps them to get involved in the development process, thus giving them a sense of ownership of the entire development process. The AfDB has a large team of researchers who focus on the production of statistical data on economic and social situations. The data produced by the institution’s statistics department constitutes the background information in the Bank’s flagship development publications. Besides its own publication, the AfDB also finances studies in collaboration with its partners. The Statistics Department aims to stand as the primary source of relevant, reliable and timely data on African development processes, starting with the data generated from its current management of the Africa component of the International Comparison Program (ICP-Africa). The Department discharges its responsibilities through two divisions: The Economic and Social Statistics Division (ESTA1); The Statistical Capacity Building Division (ESTA2)
