wikidata? If so, how can I create such a series?
Am I able to feed such a
series into a wikitable on some wiki?

Simple tables that are in wikipedia:
* league tables with columns for games won,
drawn, lost, goals for,
goals against, points, rank and rows for each of the teams in the league.
* election results with columns for votes for each party and seats won
by each party and rows for each region, state etc.
* population numbers with columns for each tab (races, religion etc.)
and rows for each census district.
In all of these cases I suspect that this information might be more
useful as a series of statements. These could either be broken up with a
statement corresponding to each column on the item for each row or
alternatively with all the information in the table on one item, a
statement for each row and qualifiers to each statement corresponding to
What is the advantage to having this as a table instead?

Well what I meant was just an ordinary
2-dimensional table (rows vs.
columns)... Excel was just an example to make it clear.
So I guess simple tables are not any roadmap yet right?
Further step would be an n-dimensional structures... arrays etc.
I wouldnt care about format.... CSV, JSON...
