I’ve gotten a slew of emails lately asking me where I get all my SSA data.
I’ve posted the links before, but information gets buried quickly on a blog, so I’ll post them again:
- Download: State-Specific Baby Name Data, 21Mb .zip file
- Download: U.S. Baby Names Beyond the Top 1,000, 7Mb .zip file
Click either one to download baby name data directly from the SSA.
Hope this helps!
