What is Data

Finding Datasets and Statistics

Datasets vs. Statistics

  • Data (raw numbers) provides all available variables collected; it can be manipulated and aggregated as needed.
    Datasets are data collected and arranged logically according to definitive criteria. 

  • Statistics is data that has been already prepared/presented in aggregated form as in a table, chart or graph.

Citing Data: Refer to the page from ICPSR, which discusses the importance and how to properly cite data.
