Statistical & Data Sources
Many books and articles will contain data, or statistical information, gathered and interpreted as part of a scholar's research. Government Documents are also a valuable place to search for statistical information. Additionally, there are a number of databases and web sites that the library provides access to that contain statistical information.
Data Planet simplifies data analysis by providing an all-in-one resource for researchers and students to access statistics relevant to their areas of study.
