Additional Sources

LibGuides — many of our LibGuides (research guides for classes and subject areas) contain information on statistical sources. Here is a link to all Guides which contain the word statistics.

Emory University Electronic Data Center — The “Data Freeway” contains a large number of links to data sources, arranged by subject. Because this is not an Ohio University site, a few of the links lead to sources for Emory University only; if you are asked for a login to one of these, it won’t do any good to try. Instead, copy the name of the database and search for it by Title in ALICE.
