Use of Data Sets
A data set can be defined as an organized collection of data. Generally, they cover one topic. Information within the data set relates to one another, and relevant data sets are created through categories of certain types of data. 
Databases are different from data sets in that they are larger and contain more data. Databases can also cover broader topics. 
There are different types of data sets. One example is numerical, in which the data is comprised of numbers. Categorical data sets can contain characteristics of a population or object. Bivariate looks at the relationship between two points of data, and multivariate examines more than two. 
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has a helpful website to explore data sets on a variety of topics Data Sets | CDC Open Technology
