Finding Supporting Statistics in LexisNexis Statistical
Statistics are a great way to support an argument or to provide an additional layer of analysis for a research paper, and LexisNexis Statistical is a great place to start to find exactly the tables you need for your paper. LexisNexis™ Statistical provides fast and easy access to statistical information produced by U.S. Federal agencies, States, private organizations, and major intergovernmental organizations.
Getting Started: A good place to start is the "Search Tables" form within LexisNexis Statistical. And a good place to find ideas for papers (and to find more targeted search results) is to begin with the Subject List link to the right of the search form. You can view all the search terms alphabetically or you can search for a specific concept, like "Business ethics". Another good place to start is to search the Subject List for "Business" or "Economic". Scroll through the results, including the related terms, and this is a good way to identify key business and economic concepts that can be pasted to your search for more targeted search results.
- You can also research a specific city, State, region, or country, to compare business and economic conditions. You can search on the specific geographic name, or you can narrow your search using the category breakdowns in the search form. For instance, you can search "Business failures and closings" and "cleveland" to locate a table that includes information on business failures in Cleveland, or you can search "Business failures and closings" and narrow your search by the category "By City" which will show comparative information on business failures in various cities.
