New Data Acquisitions

NYU Libraries is always trying to build our collection of interesting data that is useful for research. Here’s a highlighted list of selected data collections that we’ve acquired over the past few months. As always, if you have any questions about accessing this data, or if you would like to see NYU acquire other data, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

RealtyTrac Housing Foreclosure Data

brands-logo-realtytracNYU has renewed its license agreement with RealtyTrac to provide access to data on locations and characteristics of properties that have been foreclosed upon. Our collection contains delimited text records of every property that has been foreclosed upon in the United States between 2005 and January, 2016. The files are massive and include latitude/longitude coordinates, date of construction, size, assessed value, and many other variables related to each property. The data require special agreement to terms of use before you can gain access. To find out more information about how to get access, visit our guide.

Gallup WorldPoll Reference Tool

Gallup_LinkedInNYU has already held access to several key Gallup data products, including Gallup Analytics, Gallup Poll, and Gallup Brain. In these tools, you can explore specific indicators and extract data for them at the country level. While this capability is good, it’s somewhat limited in that you cannot search multiple indicators across survey and countries at the same time. Now, NYU has access to the data behind the scenes! If you get in touch with us at Data Services, we can give you access to Gallup’s World Poll reference tool, which allows you to sift through respondent-level data and search specific indicators across time and space. Just let us know if you are interested.

MobileCollins World Cellphone Coverage Maps

HarperCollins-Logo1NYU Libraries has acquired several vector maps that highlight area of 2G, 3G, and 4G cellphone coverage across the world. These files are available in our new Spatial Data Repository. To locate the data, enter in relevant search terms, or search for CollinsBartholomew, Ltd. files. If you have any questions about this data, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
