Statistics, How to Find Them

 

Why Is It So Hard to Find Statistics?

      • Words are easy to search for using a search engine; numbers are not.
      • Sometimes the study you need hasn’t been done yet, i.e. the statistics don’t exist.
      • Statistics can go out of date quickly.

Search Tips

      • Use the suggested websites on the links in the drop down menu under Finding Statistics to the left..
      • Government websites (.gov) are a great source for statistics.
      • Try an image search in Google. Want statistics on smoking? Do an image search for "smoking charts" (or graphs or tables or figures -- anything that might give a compilation of numbers).
      • When searching in article databases, reserve one box for words like statistics or research or study. Choose articles with charts and tables.
