About Us

At Data Planet we focus on statistical datasets. We recognized the need for a dynamic repository of officially sourced statistical data. As we built it, we were asked to make it more usable. To do so, we applied standards to data that did not adhere to standards, harmonizing disparate datasets and applying metadata to make the data more findable. The result is Data Planet™, a very large dynamic repository providing access to massive amounts of statistical data combined with descriptive content and a robust suite of visualization, search, and analysis capabilities on a single platform. We endeavor to hasten access to statistical data and enhance its usability for those who need it in their daily work flow, whether it be for academic or commercial research purposes. We are always looking for more ways to make statistical data useful or to provide context for this data. If you have any suggestions to help us improve our products, we’d love to hear from you!
