      Statistical information plays a critical role in college-level research in many disciplines.  Here are some examples of how statistics can help you:

      1. Citing relevant figures or trends can add weight to your arguments
      2. Statistical data serves as the raw material for performing quantitative analyses to test your hypotheses
      3. Graphs or tables created from statistics can be effective illustrations in presentations

      Finding the statistics you want can be a challenging process. This guide will direct you to the most authoritative resources for locating statistics by topic, both in the Geisel Library collection and on the Internet.
