I need Stack Overflow data for performing some experimentation about deciding answer quality. How can I get data ?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
You can use the Stak Exchange Data Explorer.
On the Compose Query page, you'll find documentation and table layouts so you can retrieve your desired data.
You can also search to make sure the data query you plan on performing hasn't already been done (if it's a simple query, it's probably been done before).
If the online data explorer isn't enough or you need the data in a different format, you can grab the data dump and process it as you wish
