Datasets galore

If you are looking for a classic dataset to teach from, or to test out some analytical method you are thinking of doing, there are some great assets out there like DASL or Teaching Datasets online. But Vincent Arel-Bundock has recently compiled an index of all datasets supplied with any R package, called Rdatasets. You don’t need R to be able to access them, because they all come as CSV files with a Word document explaining the variables and history (to varying degrees of completeness and clarity).
