You can customize your searches with these techniques:

Searching for the start of a word

To search for words starting with a letter or letters, enter the first 1-3 letters of the word. If you enter only one letter, words starting with that letter are returned. If you enter two or three letters, words starting with those letters will be prioritized over the words containing those letters. For example, if you search for i , you will get results like initial and infinite , but not definite. If you search for in you will additionally get results containing definite ranked lower in the results list.

Searching for a part of a word

To search for partial word matches, include more than 3 letters. For example, if you search for conn, you might get results like connection and disconnect.

Only the first 12 characters in a word are used in the search. Any search terms that you enter that are longer than 12 characters are truncated to the first 12 characters.

Searches for partial words don't work in the description fields.

Searching for a phrase

To search for a specific phrase, surround the phrase with double quotation marks. For example, if you search for "customer data", your results contain exactly that phrase.

You can include a quoted phrase within a longer search string. For example, if you search for credit card "customer data", you might get results that contain credit card, credit, card, and customer data.

When you search for a phrase in English, natural language analysis optimizes the search results in the following ways:

  • Words that are not important to the search intent are removed from the search query.
  • Phrases in the search string that are common in English are automatically ranked higher than results for individual words.

For example, if you search for find credit card interest in United States, you might get the following results:

  • Matches for credit card interest and United States are prioritized.
  • Matches for credit, card, interest, United, and States are returned.
  • Matches for in are not returned.

Searching for multiple alternative words

To find results that contain any of your search terms, enter multiple words. For example, if you search for machine learning, the results contain the word machine, the word learning, or both words.

Browse by business domain

When a data producer publishes a data product, they assign a business domain and an optional subdomain. You can narrow your search by choosing a business domain.

To search by business domain:

  1. Choose a business domain to view the data products for that domain.
  2. From the list of data products for a domain, choose a subdomain to further direct your search.
  3. Click a tile to view the details for a data product.
