GLST4100 - Johnston: Data Resources

General Considerations for Finding Data

  • Explore the web sites of specific government/private agencies based on your topic, e.g. U.S. Department of Labor. 
  • Explore research articles on your topic and identify the datasets that are commonly used. 

  • When searching the Internet using Google.com, includes site:.gov or site:.edu in your search phrase (to limit your results to governmental or educational web sites, respectively). 
    Example: "higher education" and (statistics or dataset or "data set") and site:.gov
