New Data Downloads For Researchers

New this month, researchers who need to access the NestWatch raw data for formal analyses can now download it directly from our website. The NestWatch Open Dataset is a static dataset that will be updated annually every January (meaning it does not get refreshed daily). Note that these raw data files are large and require proficiency in statistical software or advanced database tools to make the most of them. We hope that this new tool increases the use of our dataset among researchers!

For more casual data users (e.g., participants, the general public, journalists), we suggest starting with our Project-wide Data Downloads. These files are smaller and easier to manipulate without needing specialized analytical software.
