Statistical Lexis-Nexis Just Got Better

mortgage_interest.gifStatistical Lexis-Nexis has been a key resource for students in need of data.  It’s an incredibly powerful index to data generated by both public and private entities across a wide range of topics.  It’s the first place I recommend to students for collecting statistics on any topic beyond the scope of the usual.

A student writing a critical review of  Financial Shock:  a 360 Look at the Subprime Mortgage Implosion and How to Avoid the Next Financial Crisis wanted statatics on total mortgages to illustrate a point.  Statistical Lexis-Nexis Tables pointed to more then one source for relatively current data.  One limitation of the Tables is that they don’t alwasy cover the desired time period and aren’t easily manipulated.

That’s were our new subscription to Statistical Lexis Nexis  “Customized Data” fills the void.    This new module graphs, ranks and maps data that the user specifies by time period or geography.  Not as many statistical series are included in datasets, but the ones that are, are customizable!
