SAGE Stats was developed as a data visualization and research resource providing extensive social science data, including states, cities, counties, and metropolitan statistical areas and topics “across 21 high-interest research areas” within the United States, such as economy, education, crime, government finance, health, population, religion, social welfare, and transportation. The data series span as far back as 1980 and are updated on a timely basis in accordance with the collection and publication schedules of original sources. Detailed source information, with links where applicable, is provided for every data series.
Browse information by topic and location and retrieve data in an interactive map format. Users can create visual comparisons of state and local data and datasets for visualization, comparison citing, sharing, saving, downloading and exporting. Data tables can be downloaded in XLS or CSV formats and visualizations can be converted to JPG or PNG formats.
Additional information about SAGE Stats is available via a video and online guide. Explore other CQ/SAGE products available through Falvey, in the CQ Press Library (SAGE). Explore another statistical database on trial, Policy Map, at the Business Reference blog.
