Statistics-Seeking Strategy

  1. Know who creates, collects, organizes and curates the data you read.  Read the [About] section of any website - often found with a mission statement.
  2. Start with the information creator first - the governmental website of the legislature, governor, court system, etc. 
  3. Proceed to the largest state and/or best-known "big" school. You'll find useful links on the university Library's government, political science, public administration, etc. Subject Guides.
  4. Check to see if there are state-oriented policy think-tanks relating to socioeconomic challenges that state faces.  
  5. Check the professional organizations in political science and public administration for statistics and position papers.
