The Library now has a subscription to Statista, one of the world’s most successful providers of statistics and quantitative data. What makes Statista unique is that all of its statistics and data are visualized in intuitive charts and graphs that can be exported into reports. The platform contains over 1,000,000 statistics on more than 80,000 topics. It also provides market forecasts, company and industry reports, and consumer market outlooks.
Statista is a multi-disciplinary resource where all Regent users doing quantitative research for their projects are likely to find relevant data. But be forewarned: the platform can be quite addictive, and if you’re not careful, you may find yourself browsing Statista after you’ve found the information you were seeking in the first place!
As impressive as the sheer volume of data in Statista is, the really unique thing about the database is its user-friendly interface and the full-color charts and graphs that accompany all statistics. Statista gives you to the power to explain and interpret complex data through intuitive graphics that can be exported into Excel or PowerPoint or saved as a PDF or PNG file. Statista’s infographics will definitely add a professional look to your projects.
