Finding Articles

Finding Statistics

You can often find statistics through library guides, sometimes referred to as "LibGuides". Many of these guides include links to statistical websites freely available on the Web. Other times, you can find large directories online as well.

Some of the best guides include the following:

Michigan State University, MSU Libraries - Health Statistics Research Guide

http://guides.lib.umich.edu/healthstats

PhPartners: Partners in Information Access for the Public Health Workforce

http://phpartners.org/health_stats.html

UC Davis, University Library - Health Statistics

https://www.library.ucdavis.edu/guide/health-statistics/

You can also use a database like ICPSR, which will be covered in more depth in the next class session.
