Searching in

You can search from its catalog of government data from across the Federal Government. Once in the catalog, to find datasets you can:

✦ Enter keywords in the search box.
✦ Browse on the left side through types, tags, formats, groups, organization types, organizations, and categories.  Clicking on multiple items narrows your search.  You can click on the “x” to the side of any single item to remove it from the search, or “clear all” to remove all selected items in a category.
✦ Search by geospatial area by drawing a boundary box on the map at the left side and clicking “Apply” to find all datasets that are tagged for that geographic area.

Once you find a dataset or tool of interest, click on the title and you will be taken to a page with more details on that specific dataset or tool. Some datasets are downloadable, while others are links to web sites or apps that help you access or use the data.
Please note that by accessing datasets or tools offered on, you agree to the Data Policy, which you should read before accessing any data.
