32 Data Sets to Uplift your Skills in Data Science

Data Science Dojo has created an archive of 32 data sets for you to use to practice and improve your skills as a data scientist.

The repository carries a diverse range of themes, difficulty levels, sizes and attributes. The data sets are categorized according to varying difficulty levels to be suitable for everyone. They offer the ability to challenge one's knowledge and get hands-on
practice to boost their skills in areas, including but not limited to, exploratory data analysis, data visualization, data wrangling and machine learning and pretty much everything that is essential to learn data science.

The data sets below have been sorted with increasing level of difficulty for convenience (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced). We recommend you test yourself with all the distinct data sets we’ve provided. We’ve presented a challenging question with each
