World Health Organisation

The WHO publishes many interesting datasets at http://www.who.int/research/en/. They don’t however do a great job of linking to the raw datasets: http://www.who.int/healthinfo/statistics/mortality_rawdata/en/ is a comprehensive dataset providing mortality rates for all reporting countries, but difficult to find from the navigation.

New York Times

The New York Times has a fairly comprehensive open api, documented at http://developer.nytimes.com/docs

Outpan
