Statistical Information Sources

Sources of statistical data for Kentucky, the United States, and the world.


   Use this guide to find statistical information sources by subject and geographical area.





Sometimes you need just the facts.

  • What's the population of Afghanistan?
  • What percentage of Americans lack health insurance?
  • Which Kentucky city has the highest proportion of adult residents with college degrees?

Statistical data can help you clarify your research or support your conclusions. But it changes so often that print reference sources can't always stay up-to-date. To make sure you've got the latest figures, try the websites of governmental and non-governmental non-profit organizations.

The following sites are the best places to start.

If you can't find what you need on one of these sites, click on one of the subject tabs to find more specific sources.
