The open web provides a plethora of resources for finding data. Try using Google Advanced searching or Google Dataset Search.
Tips for Advanced Google searching include:
- Include search terms like data or table
- Google ignores the word AND as a search operator. But, typing OR in all caps will find similar or related terms (e.g. women OR females OR girls).
- Search for a particular document type (e.g. childhood obesity filetype:xls)
- Search for data on a particular site or domain (e.g. childhood obesity site:.gov)
- Exclude words by using the "-" sign in front of the word you wish to exclude
