If this is all Public Data can’t I already get it for free myself?

One of the most common misconceptions about Public Data is that it is always freely available for anyone. Not only is the data not always free (some datasets cost hundreds of thousands of dollars a year) but it is often delivered in a jumble of database formats which require expertise to parse.

The time consuming process of locating the data you're looking for - including the metadata, which explains what the cryptic column names and codes translate to - and parsing the data into a usable format make even free datasets costly.
