New Google feature: “public data search”

Google has just launched a new search feature that makes it possible to search and compare public data in an interactive graph. In this first version, data for unemployment, for all US states and districts, are available and the results are very interesting:

  1. Where can I find a list of publicly available graphs created with your system? Specifically, I am looking for a graph showing the history of Web.
    Thanks

  2. It would be nice to have an outline list of the data tables covered; and the level of detail they contain – states, counties, etc.

  3. can anyone point me to data for agricultural subsidies in Europe ?
    Ideal would be milk subsidies per farmer / per cow in Germany.
    (I don’t care about recipient’s names, just numbers).
    Thanks, cheers

  4. Dear Denis,
    one suggestion is to look at http://farmsubsidy.org/
    but that they provide quite detailed data, so you would probably have to look around a bit to find useful summary statistics
    best regards

  5. Great job on the presentation – very impactful! What graphing software program do you use to do the time lapse effect? Keep up the great work! Regards, Joe

  6. Hi,

    Do you by any chance know where I could find household savings data for various countries across the world?
