This page is designed to provide links to data provided by various researchers along with some examples of data analysis through the use of the latest computer programs.

The Towed Vehicles data set for the past 90 days used as an example in the above video is here (over 4,000 vehicles!).  Once you have the data, use Excel to see what Make, Color, and Day they were towed on.  This could lead to some interesting results and some more interesting questions.  For all Chicago City data, go to  http://data.cityofchicago.org.
