Untitled Document

Students, teachers and researchers require relevant statistics for papers, speeches, research assignments and other projects. However, accurate and up-to-date statistical information often proves difficult and time-consuming to find. Statistics are essential to many subject areas because they substantiate theories, justify opinions and conclusively prove facts. In social studies, science, economics, health, English—indeed, most any subject area—statistics provide the quantitative data required to track trends and monitor change in ways that are impossible through the written word alone. Effective research produces compelling, objective conclusions supported by statistics. Such research and its numerical data are provided in abundance by NewsBank’s StatBank.

Intuitive and fully searchable, StatBank creates an immediate impact in the library by providing support for many patrons’ public statements, presentations and positions, as well as for essays, debates, speeches, research projects and much more. Also useful as a general reference tool, this unique database complements and extends the research of other library resources. Beyond, StatBank provides multiple perspectives on many current issues and hot topics, challenging patrons to engage in critical thinking. Through comparative analysis, researchers can use both archived and current data in StatBank to track trends and compare and contrast numerical data by state, country or year
