Statista Trial

Looking for industry reports, company data, and market forecasts?  The Library is currently hosting a trial of Statista–a statistical database containing more than 1,000,000 statistics on more than 80,000 topics, from over 18,000 sources.

This database includes industry reports, as well as current company information, arranged largely in simple, easy-to-understand charts and graphs.  To use Statista, begin with a keyword search.  Results can include topic pages, industry reports, and “dossier” reports consisting of brief Power Point presentations summarizing the key facts of your topic.  Statista also provides you with an encyclopedia of statistical terms and a collection of infographics for quick, visually appealing snapshots of complex data.

Give it a try today and let us know what you think at  We rely on your feedback to help determine what to add to the library’s buffet of databases, so please drop us a line to let us know if you love it/hate it/feel “meh” about it.  This trial ends on October 3rd, so take it for a test-drive soon.   For this and other Library trials, see our Trial Database Page.
