List of Nepali data sources

Hi guys, its been a long time. I am tired of making empty promises (regarding posting regularly) so, let me not do it again. While I was beginning my data-science journey, I tried to collect as many sources for Nepali datasets as possible, and the following is the listing of the same. The problem is most of these datasets are in PDF (most are in a booklet), so you'd have to use some extraction utilities such as Tabula to convert it into a CSV or workable file format.

    Cool. So what do you do these days, since you're not blogging as usual?

    • I reddit. Haha!

      College happened, so been busy with studies + exam's around the corner + self studying things out of course (specially Machine Learning & Data Science) has taken up my time. But, I do the same stuff I used to do (i.e. programming, solving problems), just haven't been able to write as often (not at all, I guess). And I have also been busy with a new site - http://www.techlekh.com.
