Working With Statistics

Finding statistics and data can be difficult. There are a wide variety of sources for statistics, including library statistical databases and government statistical tables (listed on the right). You can also use data from studies reported in journal articles (see the Journals, Magazines, and News tab), which is usually analyzed in the article but can still provide a source of statistics for you to re-analyze.

Hint: The best database for looking at granular data on purchasing trends is SimplyMap. Want to know what neighborhoods in Greensboro spent the most on women's fashion accessories last year? SimplyMap is the place to find out!
