EA datasets

Hi! I work at OWID – here are a few things that could help you. Their relevance will depend a lot on:

  • the volume of data that you need
  • what you mean by EA-related (for example there are many datasets available on global health and wellbeing, but very few on longtermism and x-risks)

IHME's Global Burden of Disease, used for most disease burden estimates. This is an extremely dense dataset with many dimensions, so if you find the subject relevant, you probably won't run out of ideas with this one.

World Happiness Report. Not a ton of data here, but some tables that could be interesting to explore.

Crop and livestock data from the FAO

Livestock counts - HYDE & FAO (2017)

Data on CO2 and Greenhouse Gas Emissions by Our World in Data
