Iowa liquor sales data, 3m rows

Posted to Data Sources  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

Iowa released liquor sales data for weekly purchases at the store level.

This dataset contains the spirits purchase information of Iowa Class “E” liquor licensees by product and date of purchase from January 1, 2014 to current. The dataset can be used to analyze total spirits sales in Iowa of individual products at the store level.

There are over three million rows that contain a store name, address, liquor category, liquor vendor, and cost. I imagine this could be a fun spatial time series dataset to play with. Look for seasonal trends, when stores expect to sell more rum or vodka, brand bestsellers, or regional favorites. Even though it’s just for Iowa, there’s probably a close relationship to national sales.

See some preliminary documentation by Dan Nguyen on how to get started.
