Key databases and links for conducting research in Sustainability

Stats and Data

Remember that as you use these sites to access both stats and data that you should be critical of the information as you would any other source. Think about who created the data and why, what does the data include and exclude, what are the underlying assumptions or biases, how does the format of the data or the database itself affect the interpretation of the data? Below are resources that will help you think critically about data and stats:
