Although it was Jay's opinion's you were after on 'example datasets',
as StataCorp calls them (-help dta_examples-), I've long since thought
that the contents of the -auto- dataset is so _boring_, quite apart
from the fact that it appears to include nondescript cars that no
longer exist. But it's there for a useful purpose, of course.

Other Statalisters might have noticed that I try to use the -union-
dataset whereever possible in posts: its contents are much more
interesting, and it does just as good a job. The -lifeexp- and -voter-
datasets are also fun to dip into.
