Whether seeking local, regional or national or international level statistical data, one or more of the following starting points may be pertinent. Recall that in most situations, unless you are relying exclusively on numeric data found within other news articles, business articles or scholarly journal articles you locate - often your key task is to determine the identity of an agency or organization that is the primary aggregator for the sorts of numbers you are wanting to gather. And, at times, even if very local data is desired (e.g., city level), it may be collated or reported at state or national levels. Moreover, even with public agencies and government sources, because data is gathered - does not mean specific data variables will necessarily be systematically publicly reported as to specific subcategories or geographies or historical time periods you seek. The following are a wide range of great starting point options:
Two (2) Mapping Databases - These two user friendly geographic information systems allow creation of maps, as well as reports in tabular form - on all manner of U.S. Census data, as well as additional categories. Assuming numbers are available at these levels, it is possible in these systems to localize the statistics reported to state level, county level, city level, various Congressional districts, and often down to even smaller levels of analysis such as Census Tracts, Census Block Groups or Zip Codes.
SUMMON - After getting search results within the main - general SU Libraries search tool, SUMMON - one of the available content type refinements is called "data set." At times, looking only at the results under that "data set" category may help you identify either needed data, or - the identity of an agency, organization or report title series that collects the data you require.
