Finding Good Statistics

Statistics Resources

If you need statistics about anything, try one of these two great databases:

  • Statista Data on on topics such as pet ownership, music sales, poverty, social media use, and more.
  • Statistical Abstract Social, political, and economic statistics about residents of the United States.

Both offer data in table and downloadable Excel format.
