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?
