Data and Statistics: Statistics

A guide to help you find data and statistics - useful to students and researchers across many disciplines

What are statistics?

Need the average income for a specific city? Want to know what percent of the population speaks French? These are the kinds of questions you can answer with statistics! We also talk about "aggregate data", which is really just a table containing some statistics. These are numbers that you don't have to calculate yourself, and can be used immediately in your papers and presentations.

Are you hoping to do your own analysis using a program like SPSS or SAS? Head down to the data page to learn where to find datasets for your analysis
