Jeopardy! clues data

Posted to Data Sources  |  Tags:  |  Nathan Yau

Here’s some weekend project data for you. Reddit user trexmatt dumped a dataset for 216,930 Jeopardy! questions and answers in JSON and CSV formats, a scrape from the J! Archive. Each clue is represented by category, money value, the clue itself, the answer, round, show number, and air date.

I’m not sure what I’d do with the data, but the first thing that comes to mind is investigating the hunt for Daily Doubles. Where are those things usually placed, and how random is it? Oh wait, someone already did that.

Have fun poking.
