Data associated with "Long-term temporal trends in gastrointestinal parasite infection in wild Soay sheep", published in the journal Parasitology. Data consist of samples collected from individuals in the Augusts of 1988-2018 and the prevalence and abundance of different parasites: fec (strongyles), foc (coccidia), nematodirus, trichuris, capillaria, and moniezia.
