Dataset containing detailed purchase histories from 5027 US consumers

Data is Plural: “The MIT Media Lab’s Alex Berke et al. have compiled “a first-of-its-kind dataset containing detailed purchase histories from 5027 U.S. consumers, spanning 2018 through 2022, with more than 1.8 million purchases […] crowdsourced through an online survey and shared with participants’ informed consent.” The published data include “order date, product code, title, price, quantity, and shipping address state,” and are “linked to survey data with information about participants’ demographics, lifestyle, and health.” The researchers found that a stratified subsample of the data demonstrated “expected seasonal trends and strong relationships to other public datasets.” [h/t Data Science Community Newsletter]
