I'd call it off-topic. During the site's definition phase on Area 51 (which is where StackExchange sites are born, if you don't know), there were a few questions of this flavor (you can read through them here). Vast majorities voted that they were off-topic.
The best argument against these questions in my mind is that everybody who comes to this site is involved in data analysis somehow, and might be able to take a reasonable shot at answering most of the questions here. But questions about a particular dataset aren't for data analysts, exactly - they're for economists/political scientists/biologists/other subject-area experts. We certainly have some of those here, but that's not why they're here.
