How do I find statistics?
Finding statistics and data on a particular topic can be an in-depth process. We have a library guide about statistical research that will help guide you through the process:
Statistics and Data Resources: http://libguides.royalroads.ca/statsanddata
This guide has information on different levels of statistical analysis and links to a number of helpful website and databases.
Here are some question you may want to ask yourself as you get started:
- What location or geography are you interested in?
- What population group are you focusing on?
- What is the subject of your research? (Take a moment to brainstorm the variety of ways it may be referenced in the industry or government.)
- How recent do you need your findings to be?
