First take a look at our list of databases that contain statistics to see if any are relevant to your topic. You can also check relevant subject guides to see if statistical sources are mentioned.

Statistics can be difficult to find, so you'll want to first consider where the data you need may have originated. Was it likely created by a government agency, an organization, or an association? Seek out those sources first.

Look for organization or association websites related to your data, as they're more likely to report on it. Do a web search for your topic along with words like "open data".

If you can't find the data you need, try looking for published articles and news that may report statistics. Do your best to follow up on sources mentioned in the article.
