Finding Statistics

Use the links to the right to find many common statistics. 

Here are some other tips to remember:

 - try using the Google to limit your search to specific domains

   example: seat belt usage site:.gov

   note that there is no space between site: and .gov

   you can also limit to more specific domains

   example: autism site:cdc.gov

- try to match the type of statistics you are looking for to the agency that would be most interested in that data

   example: National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) or IPEDS for educational data, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for data on traffic accidents, etc
