Sample image of faces from the 10k face photograph database 10k US Adult Faces Database
A collection of memorability scores, attribute rankings, and demographic information based on an experiment run with 10,168 natural face photographs that follow demographics of the 1990 US Census. It also includes a program to easily navigate the 10,000+ image dataset to create custom image sets based on memorability or several other attributes.

Big Data Repository for Big Data in the Psychological Sciences
This is a repository of Big Data collected by undergraduate students in the University of Chicago class Big Data in the Psychological Sciences. Topics span a diversity of questions, including questions on social psychology, decision making, reactions to the covid-19 pandemic, the replication crisis, and representation in psychology.
