Find statistics

Statistics are often freely available on the web. When trying to find statistical information, ask yourself:

  • Are statistics likely to have been collected on this topic?
  • If so, which organisation would collect/publish these type of statistics?

Publishers include:

  • State government;
  • Federal government;
  • International governments;
  • International agencies;
  • Private entities; and
  • Membership organisations.

Statistics may also be reported in newspaper, magazine and journal articles.

Be prepared for the possibility that:

  • Statistics may not exist for the variables you require;
  • The most recent statistics available may be several years old; and
  • Some statistics are not freely available.
