All datasets have been collected by professional scientists or research agencies who have kindly shared their data with Hudson Data Jam. Each dataset contains a link to a Google Sheet with the data and a brief introductory section describing the research. If you want to use the data in Microsoft Excel you can download as an Excel sheet from within the Google file.

Tuva & the Hudson Valley Data Portal
We’ve created a partnership with TuvaLabs, Inc. to host all of our DJ datasets on their interactive graphing platform. Students can drag and drop the variables right onto the axes and build graphs in seconds without the complexity of manipulating a spreadsheet.

Dataset levels are derived by looking at the number of factors in the dataset and by the sheer amount of data collected. Most middle schoolers will be successful with a Level 1 or 2 dataset, and the appropriate level for your high schoolers depends on their data experience and determination. Drop us a line if you need help selecting an appropriate dataset for your student.

Level 1= Easy
Level 2= Moderate
Level 3=Challenging

Includes an additional PDF with background information and extra resources. These topics are a good starting place for students who are new to data analysis.

**Note** Please do not "Request Access" to the dataset's Google Sheet. Instead, when you have the Google Sheet open, click "File" in the upper left corner. From the drop-down list, either 1) Click "Download," which will download it as a Microsoft Excel file or 2) Click "Make a Copy" and save a copy of the Google Sheet to a personal Google Drive folder. Thank you!
