The Library has a trial for a new database called Statista for a short time.
Access Statista (http://www.statista.com)
Statista is a portal that includes data from government agencies, business and associations. It integrates data on over 60,000 topics from over 18,000 sources onto a single platform. Categorized into 21 market sectors, Statista.com provides companies, business customers, research institutions, and the academic community with direct access to quantitative data on media, business, finance, politics, and a wide variety of other areas of interest or markets. One of the features of Statista is the infographics – data can be visualized in charts, and can be downloaded in a variety of formats.
While historical and time series data are not a focus of Statista, the metadata about each table provides all the necessary information to go to the table’s source, where historical information may be available.
Comments? Please let me know what you think.
