SAGE Launches Resource of Interactive Social Science Data

Jun 26, 2014

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

Researchers can find data points 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.

New to the SAGE Stats platform is Local Stats, a collection of comparable data from U.S. counties, cities, and metropolitan areas across all 50 states on a variety of topics in the social sciences. Local Stats' standardized data is presented on an easy-to-use interface for researchers of all types and includes more than 3,000 data series organized by geography and time.
