Our goal is to make as many Indian datasets as possible speak to each other at the highest achievable granularity. Browse our data, use as much as you want, and contribute back to this effort to empower everyone to use data for the greater good.
Prior to the SHRUG, linking different Indian datasets was a hassle. The common geographic frame of SHRUG now makes it easy to share information and link data. Researchers can immediately tap into SHRUG to mine a wealth of previously unavailable socioeconomic data for the geographies that they are working on, and can then publish their own data back to SHRUG, making it available to researchers working on other topics.
SHRUG data is shared using the Creative Commons BY-NC-SA 4.0 International License for non-commercial use. You may use the data for your private research, on condition that you share your own data with SHRUG identifiers when your research paper is published. This makes it easier for others to find your data and cite your work. For inquiries into using the SHRUG for commercial purposes, please contact our team.
