What is a database?
BrowZine is a research tool that allows easy browsing through academic journals. It is a great resource if you're unsure which journal or database you should use for a research project.
You may find statistics from governmental agencies by adding site:.gov to the end of a Google search. For example, a Google search for high school graduation rates site:.gov would bring back information and statistics from the U.S. Department of Education (ed.gov) and other government agencies.
CQ Researcher is another good place to find statistics. Search by topic, then look under the "Maps/Graphs" heading on the left of each topical report.
Statista is a statistics portal integrating data on over 60,000 topics from over 18,000 sources onto a single platform. This also includes data from the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) and the American Association of Advertising Agencies.
