Strategies for Finding Statistics & Data

Strategy #2 Check out library resources

Strategy #3 Follow the breadcrumbs

Look for citations, footnotes, tables, and other data sources in your readings

  • Look for articles using the many resources provided in Find Sources on this guide
  • The results list in Environment Complete and similar databases will include links to images, charts, tables, and statistics. You don't even need to open the article to view them.
