Find Resources for Your Midterms or Finals: Statistics

This is the companion research guide for the "Find Resources for Your Finals" and "Find Resources for Your Midterms" workshops. Contains information on scholarly (peer reviewed) articles, popular sources, books, and statistics.

"Smart" Googling to Find Stats

Pro Tip: Instead of sifting through everything Google finds, do what we call a smart Google Search:

domestic violence statistics site:.gov

With this search, you'll retrieve only web results from sites with the .gov domain. Please note that you still need to carefully evaluate your sources, regardless of where they're found.

You can do the same for an organization search:

domestic violence statistics site:.org

This will pull up information from sites with a .org domain. As always, think critically about what you see! 

*As with a database search, try different search terms!

Duck Duck Go: A Good Google Alternative

Use the link below to access Duck Duck Go (a search engine that prioritizes privacy), where you can do the same types of searches:
