Collecting and Evaluating Statistical Data

Statistical data can be used to draw important correlations between data topics. Unfortunately, this data can be both difficult to locate and difficult to evaluate, which makes honing your research skills and making good judgments of quality essential. Good data used incorrectly can lead to (often unintentional!) specious correlation and taint even the best data collected. You can see above what can happen when good data goes wrong!

This guide will provide you with suggested databases that are either freely available or provided by the F&M Library for your use.
