  • Its not the "topic" im looking for ...any topic...I just need to know HOW to arrive at a stats. You pick a subject/topic and tell me where you found the stats for it . I knew someone would ask that question....The topic isnt the subject matter in this question...its Statistics. PLEASE.

    Not sure if you are tying to be a smartass or what. But in case you're not I will answer. The subject or topic would determine where you find the statistics at. For example, if I wanted to find the statistics of race in my area, then I would check the statistic data from the Census. Most demographics can be find on the Census. If I want to find out the statistics on divorce then I could check the CDC. If I want a statistic on something but not sure how to find it, then I would type in statistic on ________. From there I would check all the .gov and .org and review how accurate they are and go from there.

  • Depending on what you're looking for a number of government stats are available online. Stats are determined by the gathering of information through things like surveys, the census, employment records, ect.
