I assume what you mean is something like:

data1 = Table[{x = Random[]*2-1, ArcTan@x, {n}]

Given the structure of your list there are a number of ways to extract x and y as you've defined them above. Any of the following will work

x = First/@data1;
y = Last/@data1;

x = data1[[All,{1}]];
y = data1[[All,{2}]];

{x,y} = Transpose@data1;
