Open Web - Advanced Search Tips

The open web provides a plethora of resources for finding data.  Below are data resources arranged by general topic or try using advanced Google searching.  

Tips for searching Google include:
    •    Try using Google Advanced Search
    •    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
