Real history or hoax?

Big Mike Breaks the Deficit Down

Statistics, figures and numbers as "facts"

Statistics Source


Do not forget .gov for great statistical sourcing. Also .edu and at times .mil....

Seek out statistics from departments at UNLV and CSN related to your project.

Always make the numbers see real, through restatement, perspective and/or graphs and illustrations or models.

A response to this blog provides an interesting chain of links in the area of statistics, use of statistics, visual images for statistics and data resources. I am not endorsing this site, but it appears to be useful and the links may lead you to sources and information you may need for this or future course work.

As I see you are mentioning statistical research: I have put one of the most comprehensive link lists for hundreds of thousands of statistical sources and indicators (economics, demographics, health etc.) on my blog: Statistics Reference List. And what I find most fascinating is how data can be visualised nowadays with the graphical computing power of modern PCs, as in many of the dozens of examples in these Data Visualisation References. If you miss anything that I might be able to find for you or if you yourself want to share a resource, please leave a comment. See also Pew Trusts,  US Census, other government data bases, university data bases, public data bases, military data basesCIA World Fact Book, state and local government sites, and various on-line research data bases (ask a librarian for help). If you come across any that you feel other students may benefit from or find interesting, please let us know.
