Open Web - Advanced Search Tips

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
