Google site limiter

Are you trying to find reliable statistics on the web?

Use a site limiter to ensure a more trustworthy result. You can limit to a type of domain, or even to a specific website. For example, if I wanted to search population statistics I could do either:

population statistics site:.gov

or

population statistics site:census.gov

 

You can use the site limiter for any domain or website: .edu and .org are other possible options. Do be wary of anything from .com or .net, though. These last two are often consumer-driven and full of biases.

When needing supporting demographic information, it may not be readily available in the studies you have found. Government agencies are the most consistent and reliable data collectors. The databases and weblinks below are our recommendation for finding quick access statistics.
