JOUR 4002 Reporting 2 (McDevitt): Statistics & Public Opinion


Public Opinion

Finding Data and Statistics

Important Questions to Ask

  • Who is interested in collecting these stats

A government agency? A business or industry?

  • Is the data I want too recent?

Statistics take time to compile. Try adjusting your parameters

  • Have you check for the data in a non-internet source?

For some subjects or time periods the data may still only be available in another format, such as an article or book

  • Ask for Help!

Data research is hard! Reach out for help!
