A data mine gold mine for anyone wanting to keep tabs on California's shifting demographics, business trends, legal landscape, and most every statistic collected by the state. The state has created an online searchable data base full of info from births and deaths to water, maps and exports.

Here's some of what's included, according to Government Technology magazine:
  • vital statistics such as population, birth, death, and marriage data;
  • more than 50 million data records on education;
  • imports and exports coming through California ports,
  • traffic counts on state highways;
  • driving statistics, fatalities, accidents and injuries;
  • travel and tourism;
  • water data; and the
  • Cal-Atlas Web site, which provides geospatial data and allows others to contribute their geospatial data.
Happy mining.
