Guide to locating sources of numerical data and health statistics

Published Works

Agencies that collect and analyze data may disseminate that data in a variety of ways.  For instance, they might

  • submit reports to be published in a scholarly journal
  • issue their own agency report
  • provide tables and graphs online
  • allowing users to generate their own tables on their website
  • issue public-use data sets, making the raw data available to users

Searching the published works, via literature indexes/databases may help locate data sources.
