Where can I find statistics or data from surveys or research?


We recommend visiting the Library's Statistics and Government Resources guide for suggestions on where to locate statistics for a variety of subjects.

Data results from a research study may be located by conducting a search for your topic in the Online Library and limiting your results to Academic Journals. 

Here is an example of an advanced search that uses phrase searching, Boolean operators, nesting, and field codes to locate research articles that include quantitative research:
