See the main Statistics guide for additional, general resources and advice for finding and using statistics and data.  


Who Produces Statistics

Government Agencies.

These agencies have the power to standardize reporting and collect information from a wide variety of  institutions. This power is often mandated by law.

Research Organizations.

Research organizations often have a specific focus, and will produce surveys and publish results. Many are non-profit, and will release their findings to the public for free.

Professional Organizations.

Voluntary surveys of members are often produced by professional organizations. These surveys often cover topics related to compensation, education, work duties, and other professional matters. Results may be available to everyone, or just members.

Individual Researchers.

A typical scholar lacks the ability to produce statistics on a scale similar to that of the government or a major research organization. Scholars often produce quantitative studies that collect data from smaller cohorts or groups.
