For each format (Excel and .csv) there are two files - one for the buildings (one row per building) and the other for the companies involved (one row per company per role per building). The two files are linked by the Emporis Building Number (EBN), the unique ID for each building record on Emporis database, which can be found in column A of both files.
"Drawing on tens of millions of records, the Eviction Lab at Princeton University has published the first ever dataset of evictions in America, going back to 2000. We hope you’ll join us in using the tools of this website to discover new facts about how eviction is shaping your community, raising awareness and working toward new solutions."--About page.
On a typical day in the United States, police officers make more than 50,000 traffic stops. Our team is gathering, analyzing, and releasing records from millions of traffic stops by law enforcement agencies across the country. Our goal is to help researchers, journalists, and policymakers investigate and improve interactions between police and the public."--Home page.
Research data is the foundation on which scientific, technical and medical knowledge is built. Oftentimes data sets do not leave the lab, or may go unnoticed as supplementary files. Elsevier provides solutions that support researchers to store, share, discover and use this data. By doing so authors are able to receive credit for the full spectrum of their work, and the wider research community benefits from the ability to discover and reuse the data. They are indexing images, tables and supplementary data from (Elsevier or Open Access) content sources, and are considering these to be research data components. They also index a series of domain-specific repositories, as well as non-domain specific ones.
A single downloadable .csv file provides estimates on "violent deaths" from 2004 onwards. The violent deaths indicator combines national level statistics on homicide and data on fatalities occurred in armed conflict. The database covers more than 189 countries and territories and it is kept constantly updated. Estimates on violent deaths between 2007 and 2012 are at the core of the analysis presented in the third and latest edition of the Global Burden of Armed Violence, launched in May 2015. The database combines data from a wide range of sources that report the number of people died in violent events across both conflict and non-conflict settings. Typical sources are, among others, hospitals, mortuaries, police as well as those organizations that document casualties in areas affected by armed conflict.
OpenJustice is an initiative that leverages statistical data maintained by the California Department of Justice (CA DOJ) and other publicly available datasets contributed by local public law enforcement agencies in the state. Data are available via a Justice Dashboard or a Data Portal. The Dashboard spotlights key criminal justice indicators with in-depth analysis, integration of other publicly available datasets, and user-friendly interactive visualization tools. An Open Data Portal publishes data from CA DOJ's statewide repository of criminal justice datasets in an open-source and downloadable form. Open Justice also seeks to improve criminal justice reporting in California.
"The mission of Grantome is to use data to drive discovery of new knowledge about scientific research grants. This knowledge can be applied to enhance the productivity and confer competitive advantage for researchers, institutions, and businesses that rely on grant funding. Towards this goal we have collected grant data from some of the world's largest and most prominent grant-giving organizations and assembled them into a single database.To facilitate discovery of the trends related to funding the specific needs of each client, we have built: a search engine that uses the latest technologies to quickly and efficiently extract large amounts of grant data from the database, a graphical interface for real time data plotting of the results of any search, data analysis services for a more in-depth exploration of any particular topic. At the launch of Grantome, grant data are available from the U.S. National Institute of Health, which will be updated weekly as new data become available. In the near future the database will be expanded to include the U.S. National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Energy, as well as federal grant organizations in Canada and Europe."--About page.
A data repository created by UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) to make humanitarian data accessible to relief workers in the field, as well as anyone else looking for humanitarian data. Individual data providers upload data and statistics, typically in .xls, .csv.

"Harnessing the power of supercomputing and state of the art electronic structure methods, the Materials Project provides open web-based access to computed information on known and predicted materials as well as powerful analysis tools to inspire and design novel materials. The Materials Project is a core program of the Materials Genome Initiative."--Home page.
At approximately 1 km resolution (30" X 30"), LandScan is the finest resolution global population distribution data available and represents an ambient population (average over 24 hours). The LandScan algorithm uses spatial data and imagery analysis technologies and a multi-variable dasymetric modeling approach to disaggregate census counts within an administrative boundary. Since no single population distribution model can account for the differences in spatial data availability, quality, scale, and accuracy as well as the differences in cultural settlement practices, LandScan population distribution models are tailored to match the data conditions and geographical nature of each individual country and region.
The EU Open Data Portal provides access to data from the institutions and other bodies of the EU. Includes numeric and geospatial data. To facilitate reuse, the Open Data Portal makes the catalogue metadata available as Linked Data. Many data sets are published as Linked Data. Data are free to use, reuse, link and redistribute for commercial or non-commercial purposes.
The Global Open Data Index tracks whether this data is actually released in a way that is accessible to citizens, media and civil society and is unique in crowd-sourcing its survey of open data releases around the world. Each year the open data community and Open Knowledge produces an annual ranking of countries, peer reviewed by our network of local open data experts. The Global Open Data Index also provides links to countries' open data as well as a bulk download of the Index itself.
"Transitionaljusticedata.com is meant for scholars and practitioners who wish to examine the causes and impacts of mechanisms that address human rights violations. Comprised of principal researchers from University of Oxford, University of Minnesota and Harvard University, the Transitional Justice Research Collaborative presents data on three primary transitional justice mechanisms--human rights prosecutions, truth commissions, and amnesties--for 109 democratic transitions in 86 countries around the world, from 1970-2012. While by no means complete, the dataset includes the most comprehensive single collection of information on these mechanisms for countries around the world. With the support of the National Science Foundation and the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the data were collected from a variety of sources by more than 25 coders over a three-year period. As we complete our data collection and data processing activities, additional data will be made publically available including new data on human rights prosecutions, vetting and reparations."--
