Public SDV Datasets

The SDGym library includes a variety of public, demo datasets that you can use from benchmarking. These come from our main SDV library.

  • modality: A string describing the type of data. At this time, the only supported modality is 'single_table'.

Returns A pandas DataFrame object that describes the dataset name, dataset size and number of tables.

dataset_name        size_MB        num_tables
KRK_v1              0.072128       1
adult	            3.907448	   1
alarm	            4.520128	   1
asia	            1.280128	   1

The reported dataset size is based on fully loading the data into Python. You may find slight deviations between the CSV file size and reported size.

By default, the benchmarking includes 9 of the available datasets. These datasets were chosen as examples of rich data that you may find in real world settings. They of substantial size, contain a variety of columns and meet the SDGym standards for single table data.
