Where to Find Data Sets, Statistical Databases, and Software

Data is raw information, such as data sets, that can be manipulated and analyzed to create statistics. You do not need permission to use data sets.

Statistics are the form data takes after it has been analyzed and are usually shown in charts, graphs, tables, or figures. You should probably seek permission to use statistics in a paper, presentation, or dissertation.

More information on the difference can be found from Michigan State University Libraries Data vs. Statistics page.
