Data data everywhere and not a byte to analyze!

Everyone who has done quantitative analysis of India’s political economy knows how frustrating it can be to wrangle the data. There are so much good data published by the Government of India, but it is frequently not released in a user-friendly format. The goal of this project is to rectify that problem by making state- and district-level data available in a more straightfoward and standardized way.
