Statistics do not exist for everything: When looking for statistics it is important to ask yourself who is the information important to and who would collect the data? This will help you decide where to look for the data/statistics you need.
Example: A student is looking for the number of murders in Denver for the last 10 years.
Quick Start: Like all Government Information finding the statistic you want will very depending on who collected the data and what kind of data you want. Again Google is going to be good place to start, but make sure you add statistics as a search term.
These federal agency programs collect, analyze, and disseminate statistical data and information:
AND link words by AND to search for all words in the same resource
OR link words by OR to search for one word or another (instead of both/all words)
NOT to eliminate results with a certain term
“Quotations” – add quotations to a group of two or more words to search for the exact phrase
