in thread What is the better way to store and display data.
On the other hand, if other people need to be able to work with the data, or if there are millions of records, or if I need to do complex queries like "WHERE city = 'this' AND Status LIKE '%that%', it's probably worth the time to put it into a real database.
An in-between approach would be to use a simple CSV file, since it sounds like there aren't that many entries, but to access it as if it were a database using DBD::CSV. It's then readable and treatable like a text file, and can be easily imported into spreadsheets, but you don't have to roll your own searches through the CSV.
