Answer

Start in the Library Databases: from the Library Homepage click on Databases by Title under SEARCH COLLECTIONS. Go to "S" and click on Statistical Abstract of the United States.  This database contains statistics from the U.S. Census bureau and many other sources.  You can search by keyword, or browse the Table of Contents.   You will need your student Username and Password to access the database if you are off-campus.

There are many print sources in the JCC libraries.   Click on the link below to see the results from a catalog search for "Statistics." 

American Factfinder from the U.S. Census Bureau can be used to find demographic information about specific communities. (Link below)

For international statistics, try the United Nations Statistics Division Databases. (Link below)

From the JCC Libraries Homepage, use the Internet Sources LibGuide (Statistics page) for a list of excellent statistics websites. (Link below)
