Based on observation data of the monthly ground temperature of 5, 10, 15 and 20 cm in Xi'an City, Huxian County, Chang'an County and Gaoling County in Xi'an region and related articles, the authors made pre-processing and analysis, including unit conversion, data interpolation, and error correction, etc. The average value of ground temperature from 1961 to 1990 was utilized as the 30-year average to calculate the monthly and annual anomaly. The wavelet analysis was used to study the characteristics of the ground temperature cycle, and Mann-Kendall nonparametric test method was used to analyze the mutation characteristics, and then the Anomaly and Mutation Dataset of Soil Shallow Temperature in Xi'an Region (1961-2017) was developed. The dataset includes: (1) anomaly data of soil shallow temperature in chronological, yearly, seasonally and monthly; (2) abnormal soil shallow temperature year and mutation years. The dataset is archived in .xlsx format and consists of 6 tables in one file with data size of 546 KB. The research paper based on the dataset has been published in Arid Land Resources and Environment, Vol. 33, No. 8, 2019.
