CQ Researcher covers a wide range of social, economic, political and
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 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.
