Data: High-use sources

High-Use Statistical Data Sources

Here is a basic list of high use statistical data sources that are frequently invoked by statistical data searchers and data service personnel at Indiana University. These data sources primarily consist of electronic data files, along with a handful of important print documents. Most of the data sources in print, microfiche or microfilm formats are either available in the ET2 reference area for in-library use or available on ET2 stacks for circulation. Electronic data files are usually computer-readable and easy to manipulate; most are accessible on the Internet through the links below, although some are only available in our CD-ROM/DVD collections.
