ProQuest Statistical Insight

Lauinger Library recently added the Statistical Reference Index to the ProQuest Statistical Insight subscription. This database provides statistical data from U.S. government publications (coverage since 1973; full-text since 2004), state and private sources (coverage since 1980; full-text since 2007), and international statistical publications from entities such as the UN, OECD, EU (coverage since 1983; full-text from 2007).

The database indexes and provides abstracts and full-text, when available, to statistical reports.  The inclusion of Statistical Reference Index helps the researcher locate data published by consumer or trade groups, state governments, businesses, research centers and universities. 

Some examples:

  • Identity Theft Reported by Households, 2007: Statistical Tables (Dept. of Justice)
  • Distracted Driving 2011: Traffic Safety Facts Research Notes (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration)
  • Global Health Risks: Mortality and Burden of Disease Attributable to Selected Major Risks 2009 (World Health Organization)

Feel free to ask a reference librarian if you need assistance with this new database.
