Yes, ask for the data and in your ask explain why you need it, what you will do with it, and how it will help your objective. The worst they say is they don’t have the data but at least they can get an understanding of your thought process and framework. Good luck!

Absolutely ask thoughtful questions. Helps show you’re taking this seriously / thought process. In my experience, companies are more than happy to provide more info or guidance
