SAGE Launches Interactive Resource for Social Science Data

By Africa S. Hands

From SAGE:

SAGE today announces the launch of SAGE Stats, an interactive statistical resource thatprovides vetted, hard-to-find data from private and public sources to students and researchers. SAGE Stats includes both state and local data, and will add future statistical collections that cover the broad range of the social sciences.

Using SAGE Stats, researchers can easily find the data points needed to support their research; visualize and compare diverse data sets by creating specialized maps, tables, and graphs; and download data for further manipulation or to combine it with their own figures to create new insights. SAGE Stats covers a diverse range of social science topics such as healthcare, crime, education, employment, religion, and government finances.
