Finding Statistics and Data: Economics/Business

A guide to finding statistics in the library and on the web.

Statistical Information

Hover your mouse over the Data & Statistics tab above to see a list of the different categories of statistical resources.

Basic Tip about Data:  Do not spend a lot of time researching a topic before determining whether there is data available that will help you answer your research question.  Write down your ideal data set for your research question.  Try to locate the data set now, if you find that the available data is not close to what you want, you may want to change your research topic.

If you are having a hard time finding what you need, schedule a research consultation or stop by the Research Help Desk.

You can also consult the Library's Government Information Library Guide which may contain additional data sources.
