There are some questions1, 2 about finding data suitable for an experiment or validate a method.

Are those question on topic?

I was going to post a new one but then I thought that it might be too broad.

Aside, I thought that a specific tag would be appropriate to those questions


I vote "definitely yes". Finding good datasets to learn from, to mine, to use to teach, or for many other things can be a complete nightmare. While the odds aren't terribly high that someone will be able to reply with, "here's an optimal dataset for <insert incredibly obscure topic>", if one can't ask here, then where can one?

For the record, I consider databases to be included in this, even though they'll often be comprised of information from multiple distinct datasets (this may be a distinction without a difference).
