Statista – a million statistics at your fingertips

Statista logoThe Library has recently subscribed to Statista, a statistics portal that provides quantitative data on a multitude of categories: from agriculture to engineering, energy and environment, marketing and consumer, media and technology to demographics.

It also gathers comprehensive industry reports on 1000 industry topics and market forecasts covering 40 countries.

Statista offers interactive infographics and charts showing reliable statistical data, structured in a user friendly way. You can change the view of these graphics, download data in various formats (PDF, PPT, XLS, PNG) and use it in your academic projects, provided you cite and reference it accordingly.

Please note that if you want to use Statista away from campus you’ll need to log in using the VPN.
