• Welcome!

    Although most official statistics are now freely available online, the Library has a Statistics Collection on Floor 1A where we continue to stock popular titles such as Monthly Digest of Statistics and Social Trends.

    The library catalogue provides information about print sources, databases and gives direct access to a number of web sites.  If, for example, you key in statistics and economics, you will find a large number of records, though some may be about statistical methods. You can narrow down your search with more specific keywords, e.g. inflation.

    Official sources are available via the Internet. Use the online databases for newspaper and journal articles - the broadsheets can be a good source of topical data. Try including keywords additional to your subject, e.g. statistics, forecast, or survey.

    This page is intended as a pointer to some of the major online sources.
