Need some data, but don't know where to start?
Consider these questions:
- Do you need data or statistics?
- Have you seen the data you want published anywhere before?
If Yes, refer back to that publication to find the data source.
If No, continue to step 3.
- Who may have collected this data?
- Government organization
- Academic researcher
- Non-profit or NGO
- Private company
- Industry Association
- Where can I access it?
Is the data available freely online through the collector/producer's website?
Is the data available through one of the Library's subscription databases?
Is the data for sale, and can be purchased?
Can the collector/producer of the data be contacted directly to get the data?
