Database of the Month: Data-Planet Statistical Datasets
Statistical Datasets is a powerful interdisciplinary database that assembles statistical information from government and private sources in one single interface covering economics, finance, industrial sectors, agriculture, natural resources, transportation, education, demographics, and more. It aggregates over 590 licensed and public domain datasets provided by over 50 sources and makes 14 billion data points accessible. Researchers are able to manipulate datasets, make comparisons, chart trends over time and spatially represent data without having to use additional software programs.
Data-Planet Statistical Ready Reference is a new, easy-to-use interface for accessing the same data available in Data-Planet Statistical Datasets. Data-Planet Statistical Ready Reference provides simple and refined searching of the extensive Data-Planet repository of standardized and structured statistical data. It is designed to allow users to quickly navigate the billions of points of data contained in the repository. With Data-Planet Statistical Ready Reference, users can quickly search and view charts, maps, and rankings of time series at the country, state, county, MSA, postal code, and census-tract/block group levels.
Data-Planet Statistical Datasets and Statistical Ready Reference are available off-campus from the Business Library databases page.
