Statistical Information Research Guide


This Guide is intended to suggest some of the possible sources for statistical information, rather than either raw data or a discussion of statistical methods.  Even within this narrow scope, it is not possible to list all of the potential sources for statistics -- the United States government has over 100 statistical agencies, alone! 

Please feel free to contact me if there are resources you think should be shared here, or if you find broken links.

Find it! Statistics & Data

Use Find it! Multisearch to quickly locate articles in various aspects of statistics, or data. NOTE: You must also click GO to initiate your search.

You may find that it is more helpful to search your favorite database by itself, or to see the listing of all the databases we have available. To do so, click on Library Databases A to Z, in the column to your left.
