A superset is a collection of data, from any dataset on Quandl, of your choosing. You can combine any data into a dataset which meets your exact needs. For example: Oil, Gold, S&P500.
You need to be logged in to create a superset. (You can view other people's supersets without being logged in).
When you grab one or more columns from various datasets and combine them into a new dataset, you have created what we call a "Superset". Quandl provides millions of datasets as your building blocks.
How to create a Superset
Go to the dataset page you are interested in and click on the column for the data you want and select add to superset. You can choose to add the data to an existing superset (if you have any) or to create a new one.
- Supersets are permanent. Once created it will exist at the same URL until you choose to delete it.
- Supersets are fresh. Quandl refreshes the data for your supersets every time you visit the page.
- Supersets are datasets. Supersets function just like any other dataset, allowing you to transfrom, download, share, embed, and more.
