General Resources

It is difficult to outline a general strategy for finding data because so much depends on the topic of interest.  But here are a few starting points:

  • Governmental and International organization sources are critical collectors of data.  See:
  • ICPSR is the largest archive of social science data in the world.  A first stop for most users of detailed data.
  • ProQuest Statistical Insight does index a vast range of government and private sources, but its search algorithm is not very good
  • The Roper Center specializes in polling data, but does cover some other topics as well

And don't forget to consult the Data Services guide for additional information.
