Finding Statistics

It can be helpful to start your search for economic statistics and data by asking who the stakeholders are--who is interested in this information? The government? An organization? A corporation? Once you've identified who wants to know the information, go to the stakeholders' websites. Note that while recording statistics is sometimes mandated, it is often voluntary. Sometimes the raw data isn't accessible and some data sets might charge a fee for access. In spite of this, there is a lot of information out there and it can be hard to wade through. We recommend starting your search for economic statistics by looking through the below-listed resources.
