D3 In Depth: Textbook-like blog that aims to bridge intro textbooks and D3 official documentation.
Bl.ocks: Bostock’s code-sharing platform that is the predecessor of Observable; it is the most thorough repository of D3 examples by virtue of having been around since the beginning, but note that most examples are built on D3@V4 or older.
US Health Data: central searchable repository of US health data (Center for Disease Control and National Center for Health Statistics), e.g. surveys on pregnancy, cause of death, health care access, obesity, etc.
