Finding Statistical Information

Search Tips

  • With print resources, use the index to help quickly identify subject areas.  In multivolume works, the index is usually part of the last volume.


  • Remember to use various terms that are similar in definition when searching.  Examples: rituals, ceremonies, religious practice.


  • Current statistical information is usually 2-3 years old, this is due to the time it takes to collate large quantities of information.
