Finding Statistics Online - General Sources

Searching for Statistics on the Web

When researching online, you may find it helpful to use directory sites.  Directory sites act as search portals, and they consist of sites selected and screened by (usually) subject experts.  It's a great way to search the web while filtering out a lot of "noise."  You will have more success locating statistics produced and gathered by "official" sources when using directory sites as search portals.

One such site is the Internet Public Library.  You can try searching it below.

Also, the Bureau of Labor Statistics maintains a directory of online sources.  

Search the Internet Public Library by entering your search terms in the box below.
