This guide is a compilation of sources for finding statistics and data sets in the social sciences, roughly broken down by subject area. However, it is not an exhaustive list of all possible resources, because more data sets are being made freely available every day. There will also be overlap between the different subjects and types of data, so be creative in how you approach your research.
If you can't find the data you need, contact Cecelia Parks, librarian for political science, international studies, public policy, and history, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or the subject librarian for your field of study. We want to help you get what you need!
