    $\begingroup$ Actually, I think the previous question is more a subset of this one. EAMann was asking for a datasets with some particular characteristics (although I'm not sure anybody is paying attention to those criteria); this question is wide-open. For example, I feel comfortable voting up many of these answers, because they are, in fact, datasets, but not any of the answers on the previous question, because I haven't opened them up to see if they suit EAMann's requests. $\endgroup$ – Matt Parker Jul 20 '10 at 0:10

I really like the FRED, from the St. Louis Fed (economics data). You can chart the series or more than one series, you can do some transformations to your data and chart it, and the NBER recessions are shaded.
