What is our stance on questions asking for health data sets off-topic? I know they are on-topic on OpenData.SE, but I am curious to know whether they are allowed in this Stack Exchange.
I'm looking to play around with statistics around major surgery types; is there a publicly available data source I can work with which lists information such as:
- types of major surgeries, together with amount of time per procedure (average, standard deviation, broken down by complication, etc...)
- risk information to any level of detail
- any sort of other aggregate information
Any data set would be interesting (i.e., for any geographical region or legal jurisdiction - I know some of this info might be harder to collect in say the US than elsewhere)
