Data and Statistics
Finding Data and Statistics
Using this guide
This guide is designed to help you find both statistics and datasets. All data and statistics listed are either open-access or a JHU specific resource. This guide is organized by discipline. Guidance on finding discipline specific data and statistics is on the main page for each discipline, so be sure to check them out! Use the sidebar to find data and statistics relevant to your discipline of interest. These resources listings are not comprehensive, and are only designed to highlight prominent and significant data and statistics collections, by discipline.
Access to JHU Specific Content
Access to some data and statistics resources are limited to active Johns Hopkins affiliates, and will require you to log in with your JHED ID and password in order to use them. If you are on the Johns Hopkins "guest" wireless networks (on both Homewood and JHMI campuses), or off campus, you will NOT always be able to view full content of subscribed databases unless you use the Virtual Private Network (VPN).
What if I am unable to find the dataset or statistics I am looking for?
Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can assist you in finding locating the appropriate data or statistics.
If you know specifically which dataset you are interested in, but JHU does not subscribe, and you are an active JHU affiliate you may apply for a JHU Libraries Data Grant and, contingent on eligibility and availability, you will receive access to the data you need.
Data vs. Statistics
What is the difference between Data and Statistics?
Statistics has multiple meanings, and can refer to either:
- the discipline concerned with the collection, analysis, and interpretation of data, or
- statistical data: the statistical tables that are the result of statistical analysis on raw data
The focus of this libguide is finding and accessing statistical data. For assistance with conducting statistics on your own, refer to the Help with Statistics section of the Data Management Libguide.
