Introduction

Facts or figures are often used in studies or reports to make a point. These values, which are often referred to as statistics, tend to be aggregate counts, totals, sums, or averages. In the print world, this type of numerical information is typically found in statistical abstracts, census monographs, and serial publications from Statistics Canada or other government agencies, such as the Bank of Canada. In the digital world this numeric information appears on CD-ROM and similar products with electronic table access, or in electronic journals. (Source: Chuck Humphrey, University of Alberta, 1997)

This document deals with the location of statistics (as opposed to raw or primary research data), in computer-readable form, with an emphasis on national statistics. In some cases, references are to collections of statistics themselves; in other cases, references are to tools that assist you to locate statistics in print or in electronic publications.

Some resources linked here are restricted access to University of Toronto faculty, students and staff only. These resources are labelled Restricted.
