Product Highlights

CQ Researcher

For research on contemporary and controversial issues, The CQ Researcher—in print or web—is one of the most frequently used resources in the library today. Useful for term papers, debates, speeches, articles and other types of researchers, the CQ Researcher covers a wide range of social, economic, political and environmental issues.

U.S. Political Stats

Easily visualize and analyze data and statistics about the U.S. government and political process with U.S. Political Stats. Users will discover a wealth of carefully selected content including comprehensive election returns, congressional floor votes, Supreme Court decisions, plus presidential performance and economic indicators, as well as diverse demographics. This powerful tool lets users compare different types of data, for example voting records with demographic characteristics, to create datasets and visualizations that bring unique insight into the political process. Designed to be intuitive for the novice researcher, yet robust enough for senior political scientists, the platform allows users to create graphs, charts, and maps to allow for a quick analysis of data trends. Data can also be exported to allow for more in-depth manipulation and analysis.

State Stats

State Stats is your first stop for statistics about the U.S. It features a wide range of topics (agriculture, defense, education, employment, crime and law enforcement, health and medicine, and more) and allows for browsing by state or by topic. Compare data across states or across time. You also can create and export custom visuals, generate tables and download data for statistical research, and analyze data patterns. Updated quarterly; few governmental statistics repositories have the functionality to compare data as easily as State Stats.

Local Stats

Local Stats Give your students and faculty a deeper dive into comparable data from U.S. counties, cities and metropolitan statistical areas across a broad variety of topics applicable to the social sciences. With Local Stats, Researchers have a unique opportunity to access hard-to-find data -- bankruptcy cases, prisoner’s execution, or healthcare premiums -- for the location(s) of their choice. In a single search, students can locate and manipulate their findings via charts, graphs, and more.
