Since you have a large dataset, you might want to use sqlite3 
(,, which comes in the standard library since 
Python 2.5. SQLite is a self-contained, serverless, zero configuration, 
transactional SQL database engine.

XML with a million entries are probably not a good idea due to its 
verbosity; XML was designed for data interchange, not for complex 
relational data processing.
