ProQuest Statistical DataSets is a Web-based research solutions tool that provides fast and easy access to 15 billion data points from licensed and public domain datasets within an easy-to-use interface. With this dynamic new product, you can scan the contents of over 580 datasets, select subjects and variables of interest, and view your data in side-by-side tables and charts.
DataSets addresses an emerging emphasis on quantitative literacy, fostering critical skills in the use, manipulation, and interpretation of numeric data. Results are customizable and instantaneous, with indicators arranged in folders by topic and source. Users can tap “live” statistics that are much more current than what is published, plus local data, time series typically extending back an average span of 34 years, and necessary bibliographic/citation information.
