Comprehensive List of All Public Data Sources in Pakistan

Whether it’s data analysis or data journalism, a good data set is essential in finding out information and telling a compelling story in the information age.

You might think that Pakistan is a data poor country but that’s certainly not the case. There are a surprisingly high number of government agencies and private organizations working to release free data sets for anyone to use.

So without further ado, here is a list of data sets available in Pakistan. Remember, you don’t need to be a pro with R or other tools to use these. Even Excel proficiency will do!

If you have something we might have missed, feel free to comment below and we’ll add it.

  • I need a database of pakistan land including soil fertility, growing crops at a certain place and per acre Growth. My idea is as under : –

    It will tell you the growth rate, soil Composition, Favourable/Available fertilizers,

    and on the basis of the selected crop that you want to cultivate this

    app will give you all the required information about the fertilizers, pestecides, irrigational ways etc for the specific Area.

    that you need to grow the selected crop.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Where can I find database of all terrorists in Pakistan. I need the data in two buckets…Good Terrorists and Bad terrorists. And I need their phone records. My idea is this…Based on number of calls made by Terrorists to ISI head I can tell how good is this terrorist on a scale of 1 to 10. Based on the desperate calls being made or attempted by ISI head to the terrorist…I can tell how bad is a terrorist on a scale of 1 to 10.
    I was to sell the data to all governments in the world and make millions.
    Could data exerts on this forum critique my idea?
