Finding Stats using Article Databases

One of the quickest places to find snapshot statistics from a wide range of sources:

Simple strategies to locate statistics using (almost) any Article Database:

1. Most of the article databases provided by the Library will contain articles that reference statistics or datasets related to their topics. To find articles that include statistics, include subject keywords such as "data", "statistics", "surveys", "statistical analysis", etc. 

e.g. (statistcs OR data) AND employment AND women

2. Citations in articles and books can point to original datasets that you might follow up for your work.

3. Chat with the Library's Research Help team, they may be able to help you get to the next step in your research.
